At home, I am a member of "Team Star"; a party of 5 (amazing wife who is a rockstar educator, two amazing daughters, and one amazing son) plus two dogs. I kick back and relax at the Team Star Clubhouse whenever I can, fly fish, golf, and enjoy the simple things. I am always game to read a recommended book title about education or pleasure read (I am a big Stephen King fan).
At work, I am the proud principal (Lead Learner) at Dudley Middle School (grades 5-8) in the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District in Massachusetts. In my role, I enjoy seeing our students grow and make gains over time (the idea of continuous improvement is what our educational game is all about) and I enjoy working with / supporting our educators with implementing best practice strategies and/or taking risks with authentic and innovative ideas.
Driven in a pursuit to continually be better and improve, I focus on John Wooden's definition of success: "Success is having peace of mind in knowing that you have given the very best of which you are capable of giving." ~ John Wooden.
