“I became a teacher to make a difference in our world,” Ms. Grilli says. “I then decided to further my education to become an assistant principal to support student learning, collaborate with teachers, and to connect with all stakeholders. I enjoy the challenge of inspiring our students to invest in their own education.
“Our leadership team, teachers, and office staff work together to ensure families are supported. Being successful in the virtual environment is done with collaboration from caretakers, students, and school staff. We all have the same goal and focus on student achievement. Working as a team not only provides a welcoming community for our families, but also creates a positive working environment for our educators as well.”
According to Ms. Grilli, the best part of working with students at Great Lakes Learning Academy is seeing them excel in ways they did not see possible. Students gain confidence and take ownership of their learning. She also enjoys building connections with students and caretakers.
