Raymond is a husband to an AMAZING wife, a father of 2 wonderful boys, and a principal. He loves traveling, cooking with his boys, and co-hosting 2 podcasts. He has worked as a 5th grade teacher, middle school dean, 7th and 8th grade social studies teacher, middle school assistant principal and now as a principal. He believes in the importance of building relationships and of taking every opportunity to lead and make a difference in the world.

My dad is one of my biggest influences and as I grew up and listened to his advice there were lots of parts I took from him but one for leadership I hold dearest is:

  • As a leader I should always be training and empowering the people below me to do my job and lead. That if I create and empower them our company/business/work will grow and be successful. He always related to the idea of a football coaches coaching tree.
    Everyday leadership, building leadership within everyone.
  • Building culture and climate
  • Leading change
