I am thrilled to start my tenure as NCUST’s Executive Director.  While I am humbled to follow a great leader in Dr. Joe Johnson, we are fortunate he will continue providing coaching for our organization. As schools trudge through the pandemic, more than ever our mission is the centerpiece for schools while they attempt to recover from profound student learning loss.  We believe that NCUST is the best partner to help any school or district to transform schools into places where all students achieve academic proficiency, evidence a love of learning, and graduate well prepared to succeed in post-secondary education, the workplace, and their communities, especially lower-income and students of color. 


Please send me any questions or suggestions as I journey through my first 90 days in NCUST. Let me know how we can help you, and ways we can improve our services for your district or school. I look forward to your comments.
