“I deeply believe in a quality and comprehensive education for all students. Spencerville Local Schools has programs and staff that has and will continue to build academic and extracurricular success,” she said. “I am passionate about building healthy relationships and trust among the students, staff and residents. Over the next 6 months, I plan to learn as much as I can about the school district by working closely with the staff and community. This will allow for a smooth transition for everyone.”
