Dear Anderson Valley Community,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty and staff of AVUSD, we welcome you!

I believe our unique K-12 school system is a community jewel box, where students are honored, challenged, and supported with innovative partnerships with staff and families working together to create amazing outcomes for students to prepare them for excellence in college, career and life.

As a community of learners, we embrace and evolve best practices in teaching and learning to provide an excellent education supporting all learners.  We expect students to be safe and successful in the classroom, on the playing field, and in life. A special hallmark of our District work is the many strong and creative partnerships with a wide-range of community members to provide our students with added resources to enhance the educational experiences for students.  We are personally invested in and committed to every student’s potential and success.

As we get to know one another, I just want to assure you that my door is always open, and I value your time to meet and talk about what is important to you as you navigate your student’s education. Please do not hesitate to contact me at (707) 895-3774.

I am looking forward to a great year ahead!  Please reach out and connect with me so I can learn how to better serve your students.
