Dear Roosevelt Elementary Families,
With great honor and enthusiasm, I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Roosevelt Elementary. It is such a privilege to have an opportunity to lead an institution filled with an abundance of tradition, great educators, and school pride.
I am a long-time resident of Maywood and a product of District 89 and 209, graduating from Garfield Elementary and Proviso East High School. I come to you with nineteen years of experience in education, all of which were obtained in District 89. I began my career at Washington Elementary teaching Kindergarten, sixth (all subjects), and seventh and eighth grades (Social Studies and Language Arts). In 2014, I was assigned to Irving Middle School as a seventh-grade Social Studies Educator. I proudly returned to my alma mater in 2018 as the Assistant Principal of Garfield Elementary.
At Roosevelt Elementary, we are committed to ensuring that all scholars experience academic success through quality teaching and learning strategies, social and emotional practices, and a culturally and linguistically responsive curriculum. We believe that every scholar that enters Roosevelt Elementary is destined for greatness, and we are honored to be part of their journey of academic growth and development!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (708) 450-2047.
Dr. Algeanna L. Griffin
Principal, Roosevelt Elementary
