Dr. Louise E. Donohue, Superintendent of Schools, stated, “Todd is genuinely motivated as a school leader to work on the behalf of all students. In addition, he is eager to contribute to Parkland School District and to be a part of our team and overall mission. With strong interpersonal skills and solid administrative experience, we are pleased and excited that he will be joining us as the new building leader of Orefield Middle School.
