"I would like to thank you and the previous six Board of Trustees that have allowed me to lead this amazing district. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you, the community, the parents, and the children of GISD for the past seven years. My goal at the end of each day has always been to make a positive difference in the lives of the children of GISD. I do believe that GISD is in a great position for a bright future in all core areas of this district. There is still much to be done and I have faith in the Board to find the right person that will continue to lead the district in a more positive future." Read more...
