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 Corey Skinner, Director of School to Career Pathways. Corey began his career here in Greece 5 years ago as an Assistant Principal at Athena Middle School. Prior to that, he worked as a science and technology teacher in the Rochester City School District. Corey is originally from Canada and has family that has established and been engaged with communities in Canada for over 300 years. Corey has a love of technology and believes that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is the "great equalizer." Corey's passion for STEM will provide our students here in Greece with a ton of new marketable opportunities that will make our students competitive for multiple careers in addition to enhancing students problem solving skills through creative, innovative, design-based thinking experiences. We are excited to welcome Corey as the new Director of School to Career Pathways and to see his vision for STEM come to life for our students.
