GHS educator gets new post
GREENWICH — Christina Shaw, a Greenwich educator since 2001, will step into her new appointment as Cantor House interim house administrator at Greenwich High School next week.
“Greenwich High School has been my second home for nearly two decades,” she said. “I am thrilled and moved to have the opportunity to serve this institution in an administrative capacity.”
Superintendent Ralph Mayo appointed Shaw, who has spent years in Sheldon House, to replace Jason Goldstein, who took over for Mayo as interim principal of Eastern Middle School last month after Mayo was named interim superintendent for the district.
At GHS, Shaw was the social studies learning facilitator for Sheldon House and the Sheldon House assistant dean of students, and coordinated the house’s Stand-By-Me program for five years. She also participated in research and development for the school’s Innovation Lab, and currently holds a position as one of the lab’s program associates.
“Having worked with Christina in her teaching and leadership roles, I have observed first-hand the excellence and compassion that permeate her every decision,” GHS Headmaster Chris Winters said in a statement. “Christina will provide the students, staff, and parents of Cantor House and the World Language Program with strong leadership, creative problem solving, and thorough follow through.”
Shaw began her career at the Bronx High School of Science in New York City in 1996 as a social studies teacher. She taught the same subject for two years at West Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, North Carolina before coming to Greenwich in 2001.
Shaw received her bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard University in 1995 and her master’s degree in social studies education from Columbia University’s Teachers College. She also earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from Mercy College in 2016.
