Dear OA Community,
My name is Corey Green and as most of you are aware, I have officially started as your new superintendent of schools as of July 1. I am extremely honored that the Board of Education has chosen me to lead the OA district into the future.
This is a tremendous school community and I’m excited to be a part of maintaining – and growing - our reputation as one of the best in this region, as we build on our successes.
I am very familiar with this area and rural schools, as I graduated from the Whitney Point Central School District. I have 16 years of experience working in education, having begun my career as a classroom teacher, working as a principal, and most recently, as an assistant superintendent at the Sidney Central School District, where I spent nine years in school administration.
I’m part of a family of educators, including my mother and two sisters. My wife Shannon, too, is an educator, now in her 17th year as a primary teacher at Maine Memorial Elementary School. Our two sons (Connor – 14, and Cullen – 11) love school and are both involved in a variety of extracurricular activities.
Having been around education my entire life, my goal here at OA is to create various opportunities for students to ensure that they are all able to achieve at their greatest potential. I embrace the opportunity to work together with the entire school community to attain that goal.
The start of the new school year will be here before we know it. I’ve been learning about the district, and visiting with many stakeholders across the community. I’ll continue to do that throughout the summer, and I look forward to meeting all of our students, staff and so many more community members as the school year kicks off in September.
You’ll see me at many school and community events along the way, so please introduce yourself. I have a strong desire to build on the great foundation we have here at OA, and to provide the highest quality education in our region. Together, I know we’ll do just that.
I hope you’re enjoying a happy and healthy summer. Hope to see you soon.
Corey A. Green
