Welcome to Green Cove Springs Junior High!  I am Mrs. Green, your 7th grade Assistant Principal.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English Education from Florida State University, Go NOLES, and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of North Florida.  

My educational experience varies from teaching high school students in a health academy to teaching second grade at Orange Park Elementary.  This diverse experience gives me an understanding of what education at each level looks like.

My family is passionate about helping others through local and international missions.  We have served throughout Clay County, as well as, countries like Haiti and Canada.

My husband John, is the area director for FCA and leads a veteran’s ministry called Operation Barnabas.  We have two children, Jackson and Savannah, who are both high school students in Clay County.

This is my 9th year at GCJ, where I have been a science teacher, coach, department chair and now dean of students. As dean, I am committed to creating a safe, nurturing, and collaborative environment in which all students can LEAD; Learn, Engage, Accelerate and Deliver. As a community, we can work together to ensure that all students get the support they need to be successful. 

As we move forward throughout the year, please feel free to reach with any questions, concerns, or ideas you may have. I look forward to a great school year!
