Dear Evergreen Parents, Students, and Stakeholders,

It is an honor, to be a part of the Evergreen Champion Eagle Team.   We are always SOARING towards greatness, innovation, and holding a high bar for all stakeholders to achieve.

Since officially joining Evergreen in July 2019 as the Vice Principal, I have been working closely with Principal BJ and have interacted positively with all of our teachers, support staff, community members, parents, and our awesome students.  One of the most impressive attributes I have found in our school community is the student-centered culture that exists here. I am so honored to join a team that values learning and growth so highly.

Outside of work, I am the proud mother of two beautiful children. My oldest, recently graduated for NYU Graduate School.  He has joined the professions of giving back and helping others!   My youngest, graduates this year from college and I am certain he will explore his dreams and enter a career that makes him happy and fulfilled.  I am supported at home by my husband and extended family, without whom, I would not be in the position I am in today.

I have a social work and educational leadership background that has been developed for over 20 years with Plainfield Public Schools.  The combination of both backgrounds makes a unique educational leader that strives to always put kids first while understanding the needs of all stakeholders. 

I am always learning and growing.  My door is always open within the school, virtually, and as a resident in Plainfield.  I ask that you hold me accountable to the challenges that face our students.  Our students are brilliant, and they deserve nothing but the best.  Great teaching, a safe and secure environment, and a school community that embraces their diversity!

Looking forward to celebrating all of our wonderful successes with you.

Sincerely,

Mrs. G. Ogburn-Thompson, Vice Principal
