Welcome to Gateway Regional School District! 

At Gateway, we are committed to providing all of our students, staff, and caregivers  with a personal connection to public education. Our community is small, and we take advantage of our size by creating meaningful experiences and relationships so our students can not only learn the required state curriculum standards, but also make friends, have fun, and feel a sense of belonging. 

As outlined in the district's strategic plan, we are focused on three primary areas:

  • Providing a strong, unwavering focus on high-quality teaching and learning;
  • Fostering a safe and supportive environment for all Gateway students to belong and thrive;
  • Connecting to our larger community and honoring that partnership. 

I am proud to lead our amazing school community.  We have a wonderful staff who are committed to providing our students with opportunities to grow and learn. If you would like to connect or have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out or schedule a meeting with me!  I look forward to collaborating with you to support our Gateway students! Go Gators!
