Greystone Elementary School is a PK-5 school located in the community of North Providence. Greystone has a strong neighborhood identity, as a number of families walk their children to school each morning. At Greystone we believe in building positive relationships within our school community where student and family voice, choice and interests are valued. In our classrooms students are driving their learning by actively engaging in rigorous lessons while setting goals, reflecting on progress, and working towards mastering skills.
At Greystone, students are encouraged to put forth their best effort and display positive character traits. Students do not go unrecognized when they display respect, responsibility and safety to self and others. Greystone students are fortunate to participate in a number of afterschool activities ran by our active PTA, as well as a number of teachers and support professionals. Activities include a Grades 4 and 5 Drama Club, yearbook, and book clubs, to name a few! We also have Kids Klub at Greystone, which provides before and after school care to assist our working parents.
Greystone students engage in a curriculum based on the Common Core Standards. Teachers use a variety of materials to help meet the needs of all learners including My Math, Wonders, Fundations, Amplify Science, and IXL. Each student has a Chromebook which allows us to personalize learning! The Greystone school community certainly recognizes the importance of creating a strong foundation for students in order for them to achieve academic success and lifelong learning.

Dear Greystone Elementary Community,
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the newly appointed principal of Greystone Elementary. I am looking forward to officially beginning on Wednesday, January 5th, at which time I will begin visiting every classroom, and getting to know all of the wonderful people who have given Greystone Elementary the stellar reputation that it has. My goal is to build upon this reputation, working in a collaborative way to provide excellence in education, including high-quality instruction in every classroom, and making reflective, data-based decisions together that guarantee rigorous, engaging, and personalized learning experiences for each student.
I began my career as an educator in the Providence Public Schools 27 years ago, first as a library media specialist, then as a kindergarten teacher, and most recently as a second grade teacher. My involvement at the school level extended beyond the classroom. I started a PTO, serving as Co-President along with a parent Co-President, believing that we would all benefit from establishing a stronger partnership with our families. In the past few years I founded and chaired the Social Emotional Committee, which was based on my book, Educate the Heart, which was published by Rowman and Littlefield. I also served as a National DonorsChoose Ambassador, on the Instructional Leadership Team, as a mentor teacher to new and student teachers, led the addition and maintenance of a Little Free Library for our community, and designed a before school STEM club for our students. I hope to utilize my experience to support Greystone students, families, and staff members.
Although I have always felt at home in the classroom, it is in my new position as principal of Greystone where I feel I am called to be. I am excited that Greystone has a strong neighborhood identity, and the belief that building positive relationships within the community where student and family voice, choice, and interests of people are valued. I absolutely love the fact that students do not go unnoticed when they display respect, responsibility and safety to self and others. My principalship will provide me the chance to work collaboratively with teachers, while also allowing me to remain connected to the learning and growth of our students in the classroom. I firmly believe that every child can excel and that the partnership between home and school builds confidence in students to use their powers to shape their future.
My husband, who is also an educator, and I value the partnerships we have with the school communities of both of our children, who are currently in middle and high school.
It is my hope that we will work together to provide the students the best opportunities in preparing for the world, ready to master challenges placed in their path. My door is always open and I welcome your input. I take pride in the relationships I have built with stakeholders, and I am looking forward to meeting all of you!
