Philosophy on Education: Learning is the most important process in one's life because it is a never-ending process. When students leave high school, my goal is that they have built a strong context on which to build the learning they will experience the rest of their lives. My hope is that what they learn here will only be a small portion of what they will learn in the coming years.
Why Fairlawn is Ohio’s best district: Our Fairlawn students are the best students in this state! They are hard-working and treat one another with respect. These kids teach me something new every day. Our teachers are also among the most committed in the state. In a small school, staff members need to play a myriad of roles. Our people step up and do whatever they can for the students! In addition, the Fairlawn community cares deeply about the school. They are an involved and supportive team.
