Greenspun Welcomes New Staff Members

As many of you know, we began the 23-24 school year with the challenge of several teacher vacancies as we frantically scrambled to find class coverage for each open class period. Thanks to our great group of Greenspun teachers, we were able to ensure that students were still receiving instruction.

I am now happy to inform you that we have added two new staff members to our Greenspun family and two qualified long-term substitutes. Please welcome English Language Arts teacher, Ms. Liza James, and mathematics teacher, Mr. Paulo Nojosa.

Ms. James has worked as an English teacher in California for 10 years, and before that, as a Special Education teacher. She has a B.A. from UCLA, an English Credential from The University of La Verne, and a Masters Degree in Writing.

Mr. Nojosa moved from Brazil in November, 2018. He has a B.A. degree in physics, a masters degree in Data Analysis, and has worked as a math/physics teacher for more than 20 years.

In addition, we are happy to welcome Dr. Kathryn Grimes and Mr. Moses Davis for helping Greenspun fill very important vacancy positions as long-term substitutes in the Social Studies Department.

Dr. Grimes is a former Greenspun JHS teacher who returns to us from her retirement in our time of need! Mr. Davis has been a consistent guest teacher for Greenspun for the past two years, and students view him as a consistent, qualified teacher at our school.

I know that life will always come with challenges, but with your understanding as our Greenspun families and the assistance of our staff, we were able to move forward and provide our students with quality education.

Thank you parents, staff, and community for all of your support.
