This day would not have been possible without the good counsel I have received from my mentors both in and out of our school district and the members of my family who have supported my efforts throughout my career. GHS is one of the most amazing places to teach and learn in our country and I look forward to collaborating with an outstanding staff of dedicated individuals, supportive and caring parents and the amazingly talented students of our great high school.”
