Starting With WHY. . . a simple concept, but one that we strive for in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives in Sylvania Schools. My WHY motivates me to do what I do every day as your Superintendent. I strive to teach and lead to make a difference!
Sylvania is a strong community, built on a foundation of leaders, community support and strong families who value education. In Sylvania Schools I am fortunate and thankful to witness a growing Sylvania School District that now educates over 7600 students. Our enrollment is up 5% in just two years and continues to rise, making us the second largest school district in Northwest Ohio. That means Sylvania Schools is a huge and diverse community with many reasons for the passion for teaching and learning demonstrated every day. As I am out and about in our twelve schools, I see and hear these many amazing WHY’s, whether they come through visiting our classrooms, talking to our teachers, meeting with our support staff, or chatting with our students.
Our district also has a WHY. We work to prepare students to be lifelong learners and engaged citizens. This means that we strive to realize our vision of being an exceptional public school district that teaches and inspires our students to make a difference in meaningful and compassionate ways. These WHY’s motivate us to work together to make an impact for our kids every day. As we work collaboratively toward our district goals of focusing on increased academic achievement, building staff morale, value, and support, and working to better engage our foundations to help us find additional resources to support our students, we will continue to build higher levels of success.
