It is my joy to introduce myself as the Principal of Park Street School, a community I have served for nine years. I am Charlotte Gillespie and my educational background includes a B.S. in elementary education from Eastern Nazarene College and an M.Ed in curriculum and instruction from Gordon College. My ongoing professional development includes training in Keys to Literacy, The Writing Workshop, implementation of technology for learning, Assessment, Learning Modalities, current scientific research as it applies to the brain and learning, and Universal Design for Learning (UDL).For thirty-one years, I have served as a Christian school administrator, first at Parkside Christian Academy in Boston, MA where I oversaw Grades 1-8 as the Elementary Director, followed by six years as the Principal of Covenant Christian Academy, in West Peabody, MA.My passion is to raise up holistically educated young men and women who are prepared to embrace challenging academic pursuits and to achieve their full God-given potential. The mission, vision, and learning climate of Park Street School provides a vibrant nurturing environment for multi-dimensional growth in character, as well as cognitive, spiritual, emotional, aesthetic, and physical development.My hometown is Toronto, Canada, so I’m familiar with cold winters, rip-roaring hockey games, and the vitality of a multi-national burgeoning city. During my spare time, I love to get together with family and friends, travel, read, enjoy music, and take walks by the ocean. While at the ocean, I’m reminded of my own finiteness, the greatness of God, , and my ever increasing dependency on His wisdom and strength.
