Superintendent’s Message

It is with pride and honor that I serve as superintendent in the Donegal School District.

I began my career teaching for 14 years in the Manheim Central School District. Following that, I was an elementary principal for almost 10 years in the Lower Dauphin School District. After serving those districts, I came to Donegal and was the assistant superintendent for 3 years. I hold an elementary teaching certification from Millersville University, principal's certification from Shippensburg University, a superintendent's letter of eligibility and educational doctorate from Drexel University.

Upon graduation from Millersville University in 1991, I moved to the Mount Joy area and have lived in or around Mount Joy since that time. I always expressed a desire to work in the Donegal School District and had that dream fulfilled when I was hired to be the assistant superintendent in 2014. Coming to Donegal is the highlight of my career and it truly feels like I have come “home.”

The Donegal staff, administration and School Board work collaboratively to improve academic achievement while being fiscally responsible. As such, we are able to offer our students a variety of academic and extra-curricular experience to help each student grow as an individual. I am exceptionally proud of the type of students we have in Donegal. The character of our students, K-12, is second to none. Every day is a good day to be an Indian!
