Office of the Superintendent
  • I am honored to serve as Superintendent of the Flagstaff Unified School District and look forward to carrying out our district’s mission and vision.  We have much to be proud of in FUSD - strong academic and extracurricular programs, committed and caring staff, engaged parents and strong community support. 

    It is a great privilege to have the opportunity each day as an educator to positively impact students’ lives, and instill the skills and inspiration each student needs to be on a path of success.
