June 5, 2018, brings Election Day. This is significant in that Kings County voters will have the opportunity to select the next Kings County Superintendent of Schools, a position I have had the privilege to hold since December 2010. I have decided that after 30 years as a teacher and administrator in Kings County, it is now time to focus my attention and energy in a more personal direction.

My 30 year journey began in January 1988, as a long term substitute teacher. I never considered while working with special education students for the Kings County Office of Education that my journey would culminate as the Kings County Superintendent of Schools. I have been blessed along the way with numerous wonderful students, parents and colleagues.

Having been through two contested election campaigns, (I’ve never done anything more demanding and consuming), I have personal insight into the adventure that the two County Superintendent candidates are going through. Todd Barlow and Rodney Brumit are those two candidates. It is my recommendation that county voters take the time to learn about the candidates. Our democratic system works best when involved citizens make informed decisions.

I wish my successor nothing but the best. The Kings County Office of Education is led by the Kings County Superintendent of Schools. Through this leadership, the organization provides invaluable service and support to the Kings County education community.
