GREENWICH, Conn. -- Glenville School Assistant Principal Janean Carley announced that she has accepted a position as assistant principal at Miller-Driscoll School in Wilton.
She begins her new job on Jan. 19, the Greenwich Public Schools announced Thursday.
Carley, who began teaching in Greenwich in 1996, has served in an administrative role at Glenville School since 2009.
"It has been an honor to serve the students and families of Glenville School for the past two decades and to work with such dedicated professionals through the years," she said. "I appreciate the opportunities afforded to me as both a teacher and administrator during my time with the Greenwich Public Schools, and I will take many fond memories with me as I embark on a new adventure.”
Glenville School Principal Marc D'Amico praised Carley for her contribution to the school.
“Janean has embodied all of the qualities of an effective leader,” D’Amico said. “Over her tenure as assistant principal, she strived to redefine the position so that she could showcase her talents as an instructional leader. She will be missed greatly for all of her contributions and years of dedicated service to the greater Glenville community.”
An interim assistant principal will be identified to fill the position through the end of the current school year. The search for a new assistant principal for Glenville School will begin immediately.
