Grand Rapids Christian High School

Linda Greenfield, Director of High School Inclusion

How many years have you been working at Grand Rapids Christian Schools?
25 years

Do you have a favorite year that you worked? What made that year stand out in your mind?
Every year was somehow the best year - always defined by walking the journey with a special student or a special family.

Tell about a moment in your career that you will never forget, possibly at an event or with a student.
Transitioning seniors - always an incredibly bittersweet time after spending four years together. Lots of time together making a plan... it's a pretty big deal to celebrate with families when a young adult graduates and gets their first job!.

Tell about your greatest learning from a colleague, student, parent or PD Day. 
From my students, I have learned the importance of being present...and the importance of listening.  From the families with whom I have been privileged to work, I have learned that every story is unique and that hope is worth a lot.  

What are you looking forward to or what is your next adventure?
Looking forward to time without bells!  I am loving the idea that I will have the entire month of August to spend outside in Michigan.  After that, I look forward to having time beyond weekends to do the things there is never time to do!
