Greetings Millard Public Schools,

As we begin this new year, I want to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Todd Tripple and I am the new Director of Staff Development & Instructional Improvement. I am both thrilled and honored to be joining the Millard team. In my short time here, I have already witnessed many outstanding examples of your commitment to excellence. Your dedication to the students in this district is outstanding and I sincerely thank you.

My family and I are so excited to begin our journey with Millard Public Schools. My wife Angie and I have two children, daughter Elliot (6) and son Townsend (3). My daughter just started Kindergarten this year in Millard and could not possibly love school more! We have actually had the good fortune of living in Millard for the past 11 years as I worked for the Bellevue Public School District. I want to thank all of you for making us feel so welcome. I am truly proud to be part of Millard Public Schools.
