It brings me great joy to introduce myself as the proud principal of Garfield Elementary. After twenty-two years of workings as an educator in Maywood District 89, it is an honor to serve as the lead instructional leader in a learning environment where young scholars are encouraged and empowered to be the best version of themselves! To hear and see our scholars engaged in learning, enhancing their critical thinking skills, and acquiring strategies to grapple challenging academic concepts is quite rewarding. Our team is working hard to ensure our scholars are equipped to compete academically, work collaboratively, and to be able to utilize essential critical thinking skills necessary for middle school, high school and college. Daily, our scholars will hear our staff refer to them as scholars. Our expectation is that our students will be equipped to one day attend college and/or to work in careers or jobs that will positively impact our community and society at large. Together, with the hard work of our scholars, staff and supportive families we can achieve this goal! Please peruse our website and remember to keep in contact with your child’s teacher to ensure his/her success. Let’s go GIANTS!
