Meet our Superintendent

Mike Winters

Hello, Saddle Mountain community. I am Dr. Mike Winters, your new superintendent. I am honored to have been selected for this role and could not be more excited to be here. I was immediately drawn to the strong family atmosphere in the district and feel a strong connection to the vision of everyone learns, every day and the mission of educating all students to become responsible, college and career-ready community members. Two words stick out to me in the vision and mission; they are everyone and all. A core belief of mine is that all children can learn and be successful. This belief is embodied by the District’s Kids at Hope philosophy that all children are capable of success, no exception.

We have some exciting events coming up in the next few weeks. We are excited to open our fifth school, Desert Sunset Elementary School. Preparations are progressing and the school will be ready for teachers to move in and ready for students on August 4. We are excited to kick off the school year by hosting a screening of the movie McFarland, USA on Monday, August 1, at 6:00 p.m. in the Tonopah Valley High School auditorium. Two of the real-life brothers in the movie, Danny and David Diaz will be present for meet and greets, pictures, and autographs. I’m excited to welcome our students on August 4 and see our schools bustling with energy and excitement. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible and partnering with our community groups to ensure the success of the Saddle Mountain Unified School District.
