Since the start of this school year, she has also served as the preschool intake team leader.
Glenville School Principal Marc D’Amico said, “I am extremely pleased to announce Safiya Key’s arrival to Glenville School. Safiya thoroughly impressed the interview panel with her extensive background in special education services. 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.”
As interim assistant principal for Glenville School, Key is filling the vacancy due to the resignation of Janean Carley from the role as announced in December. The search for a new permanent assistant principal for Glenville Schools is already underway.
