Greetings to the families of Fremont City Schools. I have been on the job as the
Superintendent for about two months now and am really feeling at home. I tell everyone
that it is great to be back in Fremont after 11 years away in surrounding districts.
As I write this letter, we are in the middle of choosing architects and construction managers for
our building project. During an interview, one of the lead architects asked me what I wanted from his
firm on this project. As I thought about it, two things came to mind. The first thing I said is, “At the end
of the project, I still want to like you.” My hope being that the process goes smoothly, and we finish
on good terms and both parties feel good about the product.
The second thing I said was, “At the end of the project, I want the members of this community
to believe that the Board of Education and I were good stewards of the money that was entrusted to
us”. I want to grow old in Fremont and know that the taxpayers of this community believe that the
construction of these facilities was done well. There will be some challenges ahead and change is never
easy, but I believe the construction of these new spaces for our students is going to be a game changer
for the future of our children and our city. Thank you for allowing me to be your Superintendent and
for the privilege of leading this school district.
