Principal's Message

Portrait of Nadine Marshall
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, I am Nadine Marshall the Principal of P.S. /I.S. 45K, the Horace E. Greene School. I have over 20 years of experience as a teacher and assistant principal in District 32. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and I knew that I wanted to be an educator since I was in kindergarten. I am committed to building successful partnerships with students, parents, and the staff members that make up the P.S. /I.S. 45K family.
 
I believe, that in order for a school to be successful, we must challenge students to achieve in a nurturing school environment that is stimulating, rigorous, encouraging and well organized. My key belief is that all children can learn. We must educate the whole child by focusing on their developmental, social, emotional, and academic needs. There must be a strong school and family connection that consists of open communication with all stakeholders: parents, staff members, and students. In addition, I believe that it is important that we provide students with learning opportunities that are rigorous and prepares them for college and their future careers. It is so important for us to establish and nurture a vision for continued success, together, so that we can ensure our students have the academic skills and competencies to be productive citizens within our global society.
 
Harriet Tubman said, โ€œEvery great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.โ€ We are a Kids at Hope School and we believe that all children are capable of success, no exceptions! I am proud to say that our students are the shining stars and the proud panthers of P.S./I.S. 45K. They are kids at hope. They are talented, smart and capable of success. They all have dreams for the future, and they will climb to reach those goals & dreams every day, with the help of the P.S./I.S. 45K school family!
