"I am so excited to lead a community that shares my foundational beliefs about how kids learn. 当我和老师一起工作的时候, I always encourage them to think about our role as educators in these ways: 1) know the whole child, not just their academic profile; 2) appreciate each child for who they are; and 3) have a plan to help each child succeed. Carroll has this same approach. Being able to continue to push that forward, it’s an awesome set-up for a school leader."
在过去的一年, my “Listening and Learning Tour” included meeting with over 375 members of the Carroll community, including Carroll employees, 现在和过去的家庭, 校友, 受托人, 捐助者, 现在的学生. In addition, about 500 individuals participated in a survey. Gathering these data as well as countless interactions on our three campuses since July 2021 helped me gain multiple perspectives about Carroll’s strengths and opportunities for growth.

Dr. 蕾妮·格林菲尔德 brings over 20 years of experience as a teacher, Orton-Gillingham研究员, 大学教授, 也是教育领域的领导者. She returns to Carroll after teaching at the school from 2000-2004 and serving as a teacher coach from 2011-2012. Fueled by her early experiences at Carroll and a desire to support children who are underserved, Renée focused her advanced studies on language learning and dyslexia, earning a Master of Education in Moderate Disabilities (pre-K-9) from Lesley University and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Curriculum and Instruction, Language and Literacy from Boston College.
The path that led Renée back to lead Carroll School is rooted in her experience in the classroom, educating both students and teachers. Renée began her career as a speech-language teacher in the Lawrence Public Schools, before joining Carroll as a teacher and teacher coach for four years. She went on to teach in the Newton Public Schools where she helped to create the REACH program, a citywide language development program that supports students with language-based 学习障碍. In the pursuit of acquiring a deeper understanding of how language is developed in children and how to support students who struggle to acquire reading skills, Renée earned her doctoral degree in curriculum and instruction from Boston College.
Renée went on to become professor of special education at the University of Hartford, where she specialized in the areas of language development, 学习障碍, and preparing educators to educate linguistically diverse students with and without disabilities. 四年后, Renée was presented the opportunity by the Amherst Pelham Public School District to combine her dedication towards teaching both students and teachers. As a specialized instructional coach, Renée coached the district’s co-teachers, taught courses in the Orton-Gillingham approach, provided ongoing professional support to K-12 educators, and worked with the English Language coordinator to educate bilingual students with 学习障碍. In 2017, Renée assumed the leadership position of assistant principal at Fort River Elementary School, where she worked collaboratively and strategically with district leaders, 教师及教职员, including leading the school’s special education team.
Renée’s career has gained her the skills to successfully guide the mission and strategic vision of Carroll School in 2021 and beyond. With 20 years of instructional leadership experiences and a robust background in quantitative and qualitative re搜索, Renée understands how students and teachers learn and is uniquely qualified to further build and improve upon Carroll's exceptional academic program. She looks forward to continuing Carroll’s commitment to giving each child what they most need, data-informed指令, partnering and engaging in re搜索 in the LBLD field, strengthening its commitment to social justice, and professional development for faculty and staff.
