Principal's Message

Jackie Carducci GJHS Principal

A quote that I hold dear to my heart when I think about teachers is one that was said by American Historian Henry Adams nearly one hundred years ago because it still rings true today. Adams eloquently stated, “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” 

I am sure that we can all think of a teacher or two who we will always remember because they impacted our lives in positive ways. My memorable teacher was Ms. Cuomo, who taught tenth grade English. She opened my mind to the many life-long lessons we could learn through literature, and it was because of her that I became an English teacher.

Students and parents, next week is Teacher’s Appreciation Week. Our teachers work tirelessly to educate, inspire, and shape the minds of our students in a positive way, and I value their dedication to their profession and to Greenspun. 

I am hoping that you will take the time to let your teachers know that you appreciate them. Looking back, I wish I would have had the opportunity to let Ms. Cuomo know how much I valued her. I know it would have meant a lot to her, just like your words of appreciation would mean a lot to them.
