Message from the Superintendent
I am excited to meet the Index community and become part of your child's learning team at Index school. Heidi and I have been serving at Okinawa Christian School International in Japan for the past two years. Before that, I served as a principal and district administrator in Lynden, WA for 15 years. My wife, Heidi, and I have been married for 31 years. It will be good to be back in the same area as our two sons (Ben and Pete) and the rest of our family.
We are anticipating the opportunity to become part of the Index community and give our best to serve your children and the Index families. Before becoming an elementary principal in Lynden, I spent 10 years in the Lake Stevens/ Snohomish area. We have many friends and family in Snohomish and King counties. Heidi and I love hiking, skiing, fishing.... (Well- I love fishing), reading, and spending time with family and friends.
We will be starting up in Index the first of August after completing our responsibilities in Okinawa. We will miss the students, staff and families from OCSI, but are also looking forward to a new adventure in the Great Northwest! It will be good to meet each of you when we arrive. I am excited to learn about the great things that are happening in your town and look forward to becoming an Index Bear!
