We are starting the 2023-24 school year. After my inaugural year as the Proud Superintendent of Pearland ISD, I am focused on continuing our Back-to-Basics approach to Build Pearland Proud. This is a process that takes all of Pearland working together for the benefit of our students. Our sole purpose is to ensure that our students have the necessary knowledge and skills to take advantage of whatever opportunities come their way. We will focus on outcomes while safeguarding the principles of model, nurture, and share.
“None of us is as smart as all of us.”-Ken Blanchard
Pearland ISD must have a return on investment (ROI) and allow our outcomes to drive our processes and procedures for continued growth and improvement. We believe in an all-learner approach of intentional collaboration that uses data-driven decisions to provide just-in-time remediation as we scaffold new instruction. We must model expectations, nurture relationships, and share information and accountability.
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”-Phil Jackson
We want our students and all those that serve and support them to understand that the mission to Build Pearland Proud will require character and competence, the two dimensions of trust. We must build a culture that enables defiance of the odds to achieve remarkable outcomes.
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” -Henry Ford
I look forward to another great school year and welcome everyone to the team!
