Dear parents, guardians, and students:
The Greenwich Township School District faculty and staff are eager to have our students return and start the year. We hope that you will be inspired by your teachers, enjoy new experiences, develop friendships, and learn a great deal this year. We look forward to working with you as partners in this journey, so please do not hesitate to contact us at the school if you have questions, concerns, or ideas. We look forward to hearing from you.
First, let me say how excited I am to join the Greenwich Township School District family; I feel very lucky to have been selected by the Board of Education to be a part of this great district. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of the faculty and staff at the end of the 2014-2015 school year and enjoyed the moving eighth grade graduation ceremony attended by family and friends of the graduates. What a wonderful evening!
By way of introduction, I wanted to share a little bit about myself with you. I have served as an English teacher with both the Paulsboro Public School and Kingsway Regional School districts. After 14 enjoyable years in the classroom, I took on a new challenge as Kingsway's Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction. I left that position in 2013 to fulfill a year assignment evaluating teachers and supporting principals in the Camden City Public Schools. At the conclusion of that rewarding experience, I began working with the Department of Education, supporting schools in the five southern New Jersey counties by focusing on leadership and the use of data to improve student achievement. Each of these opportunities offered me the chance to learn from truly talented people and to shape my own understanding of the importance of strong public education for all students.
It is important that as adults we continue as life-long learners and that will be a significant part of my first year here with you! I will have many questions about what is important to the Greenwich Township community, how I can best serve the students of these schools, and what our long-term vision for the district should be. I plan to spend a good deal of my time listening to all stakeholders in our community to find out what makes Greenwich so unique so that as we grow and change, we maintain that spirit. If you would like to explore any of these topics with me, please feel free to contact me or approach me at any school function. I will be very happy to hear what you have to say.
Thank you for sending your children to learn with us. There is no higher compliment educators can receive.
