For the past five years, it has been an honor and a privilege for me to serve as your principal. I have served as an elementary principal for the past 12 years, and with the news that my first grandchild is due in November, I will be moving on to new opportunities.
The work of a principal is challenging, rewarding, bittersweet, lively, and never dull. My favorite moments have come in the connections I have made with students, families, and staff members. It is these simple pleasures that keep me coming back each day to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their families. The task of educating young children is a tall order, and I have been blessed to have the charge of creating an environment in which learning can thrive. There have been lessons learned, mistakes made, and alliances formed. More importantly, even with occasional setbacks, there have been obstacles overcome and goals achieved.
The Green Street School Community is a unique, vibrant, colorful, and exciting place. I am confident that GSS will continue to improve under the leadership of Mr. Mark Speno. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve all of you for these last five years.
John Reed, Principal
