SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

Superintendent’s Message 

      I am thrilled to welcome you to the start of the 2024-2025 school year Kepler Neighborhood School. As your superintendent, I am honored to join this vibrant and dedicated community of student, families, and educators.

My Journey with Kepler

      I have been with Kepler for almost 6 years. Before my current role as superintendent, I had the privilege of serving Kepler as Assistant Superintendent and Chief Business Officer (CBO) for Business Services for 5 years. During this time, I had the opportunity to work closely with the school community and contribute to the growth and development of Kepler Neighborhood School.

A Shared Vision for Excellence

     At Kepler, we are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience that empowers our students to reach their full potential. Our shared vision is to create a learning environment that fosters academic excellence, cultivates creativity, and nurtures the social-emotional well-being of every child.
