It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the Lyme Central

              School Website! As the Superintendent of LCS, it’s

              always a privilege to share the many exciting opportunities

              we offer our students. 

              Please, visit our website often, as we do our best to update

              information and photographs regularly.



    My career in public education has spanned just over 30 years, and throughout that time I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to learn, develop and lead in four school districts in a variety of capacities…as an Elementary Teacher; Assistant Principal/Curriculum Coordinator; K-12 Curriculum Coordinator of Mathematics; Elementary Principal/Special Education Supervisor; Assistant Superintendent; Shared-Superintendent in two districts, and as the sole Superintendent.

    While I will remain forever grateful for those varied, life-changing opportunities, serving our children, their families, the staff and community of the Lyme Central School District has without a doubt been the most fulfilling and rewarding time in my career!
