New Princeton High School assistant principal selected

Stephanie Greenberg

Stephanie Greenberg will begin her new job as an assistant principal at Princeton High School this Monday, July 12.

“Stephanie Greenberg is an engaging and accomplished educator with experience, leadership, and a passion for learning and she will be a tremendous asset to Princeton High School,” said new Princeton Superintendent of Schools Carol Kelley. “I’m thrilled that she will be working with Principal Chmiel and the administrative team.”

Greenberg previously served as the supervisor of humanities for grades 7 through 12 for the district. She has worked for the Princeton Public Schools since November of 2018. Previously, she was an English teacher at Millburn High School for five years. She has also taught in the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional Schools, Brooklyn, South Korea, and Taiwan. She earned her bachelor’s degree in English from Princeton University and a master’s degree in politics and education from the Teachers College at Columbia University. She also has a master’s degree in educational administration from Rutgers University.

District officials said that in 2020, Greenberg helped her staff of more than 40 English and social studies teachers pivot to remote learning, and also provided professional development workshops and coaching to teachers. Her professional interests include student engagement strategies, culturally responsive pedagogy, inclusive curriculum, and differentiated instruction.

Greenberg said she enjoyed working with administrators, faculty, and students at the high school in her previous role. “We’ve come through an incredibly challenging time together, and I’m looking forward to embracing the opportunities for continued excellence and innovation that lie ahead,” she said.

Princeton High School has an enrollment of about 1,550 students. The team of assistant principals at Princeton High School includes Cecilia Birge and Rashone Johnson. Each assistant principal typically works with a third of the student body, and students are assigned to an assistant principal based on the first letter of the student’s last name. Greenberg replaces Jared Warren, who accepted a job in another school district.

“I am very pleased that Ms. Greenberg will join our team,” said Frank Chmiel, the new principal of Princeton High School. “There was a diverse, talented, and highly qualified group of candidates for this position. Ms. Greenberg brings three years of quality leadership experience. Her erudition and acumen, combined with her devotion to helping all learners succeed, won over the interview committee.”

Greenberg’s hobbies include running and singing. She has completed the New York City Marathon and more than 20 other races. As a vocal ensemble member, she has performed with a cappella groups and choruses in Princeton, Seoul, New York City, and San Francisco. She serves on the alumni board of Princeton University’s teacher preparation program and has also collaborated with fellow Princeton University alumni on selections for the Princeton Prize in Race Relations, a $1,000 scholarship given annually to a local high school student who has worked to promote racial harmony in the community.
