Dear Parents and Members of the Watertown City School District Community,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as the Superintendent of the Watertown City School District.  We have an excellent Board of Education, committed administrators, dedicated teachers, devoted staff, amazing students, supportive families, and a wonderful community. 

You know me as Patti LaBarr: community member, parent of two Watertown City School District graduates, former fifth grade teacher, administrative intern, math coach, assistant principal, principal, and assistant superintendent.  I have served in many positions within the district as well as the community for the past thirty years.  Based on all of my experiences, I know our district and community’s strengths and weaknesses.  I am prepared to lead a team and create a strategic long-term plan that will commit to excellence for students, staff, parents, and the community.

My ‘student first’ motto, strong instructional leadership, and educational background aligns with the mission of the Watertown City School District.  I have lived and breathed it.  I bleed purple.   In the past year as Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Curriculum in the Watertown City School District, I have promoted teamwork and collaboration.  I have worked with all stakeholders to celebrate successes and to find solutions to our weaknesses.  Working together and giving stakeholders a voice has created a positive climate.

I embrace being an active, visible member of the community and serving as the Superintendent of the Watertown City School District.  Our community and the school district are exceptional places to raise a family and to educate children.

Together, we are TEAM AWESOME!
