Principal's Message

  • Dear Parents and Friends,

    It is with great enthusiasm and pleasure that a write to you this letter as your new NTI Principal welcoming you to the 2021-2022 school year. I am truly honored to become part of this school community and continue the great work happening at NTI. In just the few experiences I have had with staff, students, and families, it is clear that NTI is a special place for learning and growing.

    Professionally, I have 20 years of experience in education, with 16 of those years in North Tonawanda as an elementary teacher and middle school administrator. My wife, Tracy, and I attended North Tonawanda schools and are graduates of North Tonawanda High School. Our son, Anthony, currently attends NTI.

    One of the most important aspects of my work here at NTI will be building strong relationships with the students, families, and staff. You will find me in the hallways, classrooms, cafeteria, and at special activities. My passion has always been and will be educating students. I will continue our vison for NTI to provide an educational experience that inspires and motivates students to be lifelong learners while providing an environment that meets the individual needs of students, both academically, socially, and emotionally.

    In the 2021-2022 school year, we are hopeful to get back to holding many of the wonderful special events NTI has hosted for families in past years such as Open House, Color Run, and Family Fun Nights. As our NTI motto states, together we are one. A great partnership with school and home fosters successful students. I encourage parents to get involved with our Friends of NTI organization.

    I am looking forward to starting the 2021-2022 school year and working together with the staff, students, and families of NTI to make it a wonderful year. Please know, I will always make myself available for any help and support you may need. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
