About

Principal Pamela Iwasinski

Principal“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.."

 Assistant Principal Kimberly Thompson

SMKI would like to take a moment and introduce myself. My name is Kimberly Thompson and I am the Assistant Principal, at Stanley M. Koziol Elementary School. While I am new to the role of Assistant Principal I am not new to the SMK family. I have spent the last 14 years in the district as the Early Childhood Coordinator and Special Education Preschool Teacher. I have lived in the western part of this beautiful state for most of my adult life. 

My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree from Wheelock College in Elementary/Early Childhood Education, Massachusetts State Certification in Special Education Moderate Disabilities Prek-8th grade, Massachusetts Administrator’s Licensure Prek-6 from MESPA, the Massachusetts Elementary School Principal’s Association, and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction Grades 1-6 through Lesley University.

As part of the administrative team I want to ensure that we create a warm and welcoming environment which allows our students to feel safe, and gives all students the opportunity to become active members of our community. With the collaboration of staff, students, and parents our mission to support and educate children will be successful!

I leave you with this simple thought that shares my belief as an administrator:

“One Team, One Goal, No Limits”
