Welcome to the Lewiston – Altura School District!

I am proud to be Superintendent for the L-A School District. I began this position in July 2020. I have worked in public education for over 35 years. I began my career as an early childhood special education teacher. I have also worked as an elementary classroom and special education teacher, as well as an elementary principal, middle/high school principal and Community Education Director.

I am proud to now be part of the Lewiston and Altura communities. I am looking for opportunities to meet people and talk about our district and how we can best support you! I am passionate that when public schools work closely with local businesses and community members – everyone benefits! The work we do in schools with students from preschool through high school is essential for successful thriving communities.

I am so proud of our staff, students and all that is happening in our classrooms, halls and gyms or fields. Academics, arts and athletics are all important! We are committed to support every student to help them achieve at their highest level. It is our responsibility to make sure students always feel physically and emotionally safe. In my role, I have the honor to work with the School Board and all staff to problem solve and assure that our entire district is running smoothly. We are here to support our L-A students and families and to provide the very best education we can every day.

Please feel free to call or email me if you want to talk about any questions, ideas or concerns related to the Lewiston-Altura School District. I’d love to meet you!

Go Cardinals!
