Gateway Lab School

Interim Principal

August 2018

 

Greetings Gateway Lab Families,


Welcome back for a new school year. There have been some changes and additions to our Gateway Lab Family. We have increased some of our academic resources while recruiting new staff to enhance the arts integration in learning.

 

It is with great pride and honor that I have accepted the position of Interim Principal. I joined the Gateway Lab Family in February of 2018. I have been a licensed teacher for 20 plus years. During my experience, I have had many roles in education. I have serve as a teacher, student advisor, dean of students, and assistant principal. Now I look forward to sharing my experience in education to lead Gateway into the forefront of learning.

 

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by GLS by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on arts integration initiatives, common core skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement.

 

Our team of teachers have searched and collaborated to find the best curriculum that meets our studentsneeds. Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th teachers will begin using the Wonders curriculum by McGraw-Hill, while our middle school teachers will implement the Collections series by Houghton Harcourt. Our staff expect increasing results in suppling quality education. We have also increase some of our technology resources.

School begins on August 29th and I look forward to seeing all of our Gateway Gladiators.

 

Gratefully,
Marlin White
Interim Principal
