Thank you for visiting the NexTech High School of Lansing website. Our team at NexTech is dedicated to supporting students throughout the region with a true blended learning experience. We are small, innovative, passionate, and are excited to meet you.
I joined the NexTech team in 2018 as the "school leader," which in a small school means that I serve as the principal and the superintendent. I feel my responsibility is to fully support the teachers, students, and families. When you enter NexTech, you'll notice my desk is not in a closed office. I, rather, decide to sit out in the open learning area. This is my way to make sure I continue to stay connected to the students and families as they come and go during the day. The NexTech students and staff are my favorite people in the world and I am more than happy to call NexTech my home.
One of my favorite things about the NexTech program is how we are a small family. We max out our student enrollments at 250 students total. We try to keep our student to teacher ratio at 15:1, so that we have the ability to focus on each and every student. As we are a small program, we are able to change and adapt quickly based on what we see from the data and the needs of our students.
I spent years studying the best practices in educational technology, online learning, and blended learning. In my former role, I traveled the state and country, training schools on how to best implement these learning strategies. It is rewarding and an honor to serve the staff, students, and families of NexTech High School of Lansing. If there is ever anything you need, please do not hesitate to reach out!
