Thank You Message

Thank You


I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to the overwhelming welcome I have received in my first couple of weeks as Superintendent of Ten Broeck Academy/Franklinville Central School District. I have witnessed a tremendous effort put forth by the staff to ensure that our children’s needs are being met.  It is fulfilling to be part of a strong, dedicated staff, and to know the primary focus of our District is to advance opportunities for kids while instilling in them the qualities of good citizenship.  This year begins my 18th year in education, and have had the opportunity to serve in many different districts as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, Assistant Superintendent and now your Superintendent. My experiences in each of these roles allowed time to develop a well-rounded perspective of education at all levels.


In addition to my professional life, I am also a husband and father of four children ranging in age from 16-25. My wife Andrea of 31 years, is a middle school special education teacher. My professional and personal experiences have shaped who I am today, as well as my expectations of what our school does for kids daily. I look forward to seeing you throughout the year in our schools, concerts, athletic events, theatrical productions, and other school-related activities. I welcome the opportunity to share the successes of our students with you and witness their diverse talents, which reflect the best that Franklinville Central School District has to offer. I feel that school districts are here to serve our students, parents, and community and provide a well-rounded educational experience allowing our graduates to make a positive impact in life.


I look forward to a wonderful school year and welcome all parents, community members and alumni to stop in and see us. You are always welcome!
