Principal Finalist Meet and Greet

Principal Finalist Meet and Greet
Posted on 06/12/2018
Late last week, the interim principal search committee selected one candidate, Glenda Cresto, as their finalist for the position of Cabot School Interim Principal.

Glenda has been an educator for many years. She holds academic degrees in cultural anthropology (BA), theatre education (MFA) and school leadership (Ed.M). She gained experience teaching theatre at the community college level and at the elementary level before landing a teaching position at a large regional high school in Massachusetts. There, she started the high school theatre program and taught courses in theatre, English, Cultural Anthropology, Early Childhood Education, and Public Speaking. As she gained experience in the classroom, she became a mentor teacher – and discovered a new passion: teaching teachers. She returned to graduate school at Harvard University, where she focused on school leadership, mentoring, and teacher training. Upon graduation, she continued to work with preservice and new teachers in the Boston Public Schools and at Harvard University. Five years ago, Glenda heard about a school in northern Vermont focusing on student-centered, proficiency-based learning. Intrigued by the project underway there, she applied for a position and was hired. She discovered the power of education in Vermont – innovative, committed to empowering every student to live the future they imagine – and stayed. She is excited about the work underway at the Cabot School, and looks forward to supporting and working with faculty and staff, students and their families, and the Cabot community in the work of ensuring a great education at the Cabot School for every student.

Glenda will be traveling to Cabot tomorrow to tour the school and meet with faculty, students and the community. The School Board will host a meet and greet session with Ms. Cresto on Wednesday, June 13th, at 5PM in the Cabot School Library.

We hope you'll be able to come out and meet our potential next principal!
