It is an honor to introduce myself as the new Vice Principal of Grover Cleveland Elementary School. My name is Dr. Patrick Holness, and I am looking forward to adding to the Grover Cleveland School community in supporting staff, students, families, and Principal Mr. Al Giambrone.
I have a deep passion and love for education. As I prepare to enter into my 18th year as an educator, my commitment continues to ignite with even more enthusiasm and optimism for the future of our young people.
My interactions with many talented educators over the years has shaped me into the leader that I am today. I am a lifelong educator and learner. I believe that all students can learn when given the appropriate conditions and support.
I come to Grover Cleveland School with a strong background in elementary education and instructional leadership. Great schools are the result of great teachers, and great leaders. I look forward to working together to support our students socially, emotionally, and academically.
