Message from the Superintendent

  • Welcome to Berwick Area School District.  
    I have been honored to be the Berwick Area School District superintendent since August 2020.  I am a Berwick Area School District graduate and a residing member of our community.  I entered the educational field over 20 years ago.  I am true to the desire to help all learners be productive members of our community.  That was my focus many years ago, and today is the same. 
    My goal is that our schools and programs will be a nurturing environment where learning is an inspiration for a culture that encourages academic achievement, self-discipline, personal integrity, and moral values.  

    I started during the pandemic, which was a difficult time for the world.  At the time, I focused on working as a T.E.A.M.Together, Everyone, Achieves, More.  Berwick navigated this challenge as a team and supported each other.  Our students see how our community works at goals, the respect we have for each other, and the kindness we all share.

    The focus for the 2023/2024 school year is to develop a culture that embraces a positive change for our learning community.  Research shows that positive relationships are key to motivating students to successful achievement and improve behaviors.  Our staff have embraced a unified effort.  We are working together to listen, be valued, build trust and celebrate achievements.  

    Our scores showed improvement in the first year of our new math curriculum!  We are on the right path!  
    Our teachers, staff and administration continue to rely on the parent/guardian relationship to assist in student success in the classroom.
    I organized a Superintendent Advisory Council that currently involves all district employees.  We are at the next level in adding parents and community members.  Together we will work to improve our culture.

    As the superintendent of the Berwick Area School District, I hope that we form a relationship that is lasting and focused on helping our students be successful.

    If you need to reach me for any reason, please do not hesitate to email me, or call 570-759-6400 ext. 3520.  Stay safe and healthy.
