“If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.”
Dear Mountain View School District Team, Parents, Students and Community Members,
My name is Todd Fiske and I am honored to introduce myself as your new superintendent and I’m excited to join the team of educators and support staff that builds, guides and instructs our students.
Over the past 25 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of an educational advocate. Not only am I excited to begin working with the different teams, I also look forward to the work associated with “US” being one cohesive team that works collaboratively for the best education we can provide our students and the communities we serve.
A bit-of-background. For the past 8 years I have worked closely with students working through emotional difficulties and drug abuse. As their Executive Director/Superintendent this work was difficult, but very rewarding. Prior to this work I was a principal and superintendent for 12 years. This work was very gratifying and working with a strong group of educators a capstone. Of course, teaching perhaps was some of my most rewarding parts of my career. Building relationships through teaching has always spoken to me and I have cherished past students connecting many years later.
As I enter into the superintendent’s role, my first goalwill be to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they may learn. Given the climate associated with COVOD-19 the past months have been difficult on everyone and our team will work to provide the best and safest course of action for the fall.
Once again, I am thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to all of the Mountain View School District communities. I look forward to getting to know the team and I look forward to meeting students, parents and community members. I will be working most days this summer to ensure for a smoothtransition and opening for our 2020/21 school year. If time allows, stop by to say hello.
