Curriculum Director

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the Curriculum Director for Fostoria City Schools. I have had the privilege of serving in this position since August 2017. My commitment to the district is to utilize my skills as an educational leader, knowledge of curriculum and instruction and staff development to continue to move Fostoria City Schools down the path to greatness!  My goal is to serve as a resource and support for staff, students, and families alike – to be a true partner in education to ensure every child’s success.

As Curriculum Director, my door is always open, and I welcome your comments or questions. Please continue to check the district website regularly - My goal is to have helpful links, educational resources, new information, upcoming events, and additional information to help support you and your child.

Science Instructional Resource Adoption

You may have noticed that over the last couple of years, FCS has updated our textbooks and instructional resources in several content areas. This is because the district has committed itself to a six-years review cycle for instructional materials. This year, the focus of the district will be on reviewing the needs of the science department K-12. The investment into these new curriculum adoptions is something that the district takes very seriously. In order to ensure that a thorough review of our needs and options is completed FCS will assemble a committee of K-12 teachers, administrators, parents and students to begin this review process. The goal for the committee is to determine what resources will best meet the needs of our students for the 2024-2025 school year and beyond.
