Principal Janet L. Reid
I have been in public school education for 20 years. My career began as a special needs teacher in a middle school in Washington State. Two years later, I moved to Massachusetts and taught reading and writing to high school special needs students. I then transferred to an elementary school where I was a behavior specialist for grades K-3. During this time I completed my administrative certificate and was offered an administration position is West Springfield Public Schools. For one year I was the building administrator at Cowing School, where as part of my position, I was the Early Childhood Coordinator. During that year I learned a lot and when I was offered the principal position at Szetela, I welcomed the opportunity. I have been at Szetela for 14 years and I love working with this age group of children.
My personal goal here is to make this school a positive experience for all students and parents as this is their first experience in public school.
