In an effort to celebrate the incredible staff we have in our district and to make connections across our entire system, we wanted to highlight some of the phenomenal people who are making a difference in our schools and communities. Getting to Know Greece will be a monthly feature that will introduce you to Greece staff members serving in a variety of roles and responsibilities across the district. In each short vignette, you will hear about who the staff member is, what they do, their life's journey, and what motivates them on a daily basis.
Our latest installment features Richard Wood, a Physical Education Teacher at Lakeshore Elementary School. With the district's focus on adult's and student's social emotional learning and health, Rich stepped into a role as the District's Health and Wellness Coordinator to support students and staff in those areas. Rich has been with the district for 19 years and has worked at both the elementary and secondary level. His dedication to improving himself and others mentally, physically, and social-emotionally are what drove him to this field.
