GREENWICH, Conn. -- Safiya Key has been appointed Interim Assistant Principal for Glenville School, effective Tuesday, according to a statement from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Sal Corda.
Key has been with the Greenwich Public Schools since 2010 as a Speech-Language Pathologist and instructional coach. Since the start of this school year, she has also served as the Preschool Intake Team Leader.
"Safiya thoroughly impressed the interview panel with her extensive background in special education services,'' Glenville School Principal Marc D’Amico said. "Further, we were equally impressed with her vast pedagogical knowledge and how she transfers her learning to that of her colleagues through her instructional coaching role. As an accomplished Speech-Language Pathologist and instructional coach, Safiya brings to Glenville the proper credentials needed to fill this very important vacancy. I am looking forward to personally introducing her to the staff and greater Glenville community.'
Janean Carley announced her resignation as Assistant Principal in December. The search for a new permanent Assistant Principal for Glenville Schools is already under way.
Key began working in the Norwalk Public Schools as a speech-language pathologist in 2005. She came to the Greenwich Public Schools in 2010, supporting the preschool program as a speech-language pathologist and as an instructional coach for the District and community.
Key also maintains a private practice, providing speech and language therapy and related services to individuals and their families. She received a bachelor of science degree in communication and psychology from Syracuse University, Syracuse in 1999; a master of science degree in communication from Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven in 2005, and completed the educational and administration certification program at the University of Bridgeport, Bridgeport in 2016.
