Welcome Back RIS Family,
Many educators, including myself, believe that your three years of intermediate school are the most pivotal of your educational career. That is why I will always have an open door policy, whether you want to stop in to ask a question, talk about a problem that you are having, or just to say hello, my door will always be open for "family". I can assure you when you walk through the doors to begin the school day, you will be part of something special. RIS will continue to have a warm and safe environment, where students will enjoy learning each and every day.
I look forward to meeting the entire student body and their families and keeping an open line of communication with parents, community members and stakeholders. As the school year moves on, I would love the RIS family to meet my family: my wife, Kristin, an elementary school teacher, and our two boys, Jake, who is four, and Chase who is one. I can promise you that every student at RIS will be treated the same way I would envision my children being treated when they begin their educational journeys.
Again welcome to a new school year and I look forward to working with my new RIS family.
