He is the Superintendent of the Winooski School District in Vermont and supports future education leaders through his work as a Program Core Experience Coach at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. He is the former principal of Fairview Elementary School in Española, the largest primary school in the area, and a former English Language Arts teacher at Española Valley High School.
