For the past five years, I have served as the principal of North Smithfield High School in North Smithfield, RI.  I am a life-long Rhode Islander with a passion for educational improvement and change initiatives.  This blog will attempt to capture some of the most important issues facing schools today.  The primary focus will be high schools.  My inspiration for this blog is that I am lucky that my position allows me to engage in rich, insightful discussions on a daily basis with school administrators, teachers, counselors, students and families.  I believe that these discussions mirror those held in most schools and districts and that a weekly blog will allow for a more open, honest, and (hopefully) practically applicable forum.  I am interested specifically in how ideas become reality and how positive change happens.
