Stacey Green began her tenure at Stockton Grade School (SGS) as a new principal with an ambitious goal: transform the school’s culture from an isolated, individual classroom focus to an integrated, responsive, and collaborative environment where teachers lead with the whole child and the whole school in mind. In just six years, Green has had remarkable success, not only because of her individual talents, but because of her belief that change happens when leaders “empower others to remove barriers and transform problems into opportunities.” Green has used this approach to lead SGS through the Kansas School Redesign process, earning the distinction of being named a Kansas Mercury School in 2017. On the path toward personalizing student learning, Green has supported teachers in aligning with school vision and purpose through personalized professional development. SGS teachers have since embraced trauma-informed practices, increasing connection with students across experiences, and improving staff’s capacity for mutual support, self-care, and vicarious trauma prevention. Green holds an M.S. from Fort Hays State University and a B.A. from Bethany College.
Stacey was recently awarded the Kansas District V Distinguished Principal, the Kansas National Distinguished Principal Class of 2020, and a Bethany College 2020 Alumni Award of Merit.
Stacey is the wife of Kirk and they recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. They have two children, Audrey and husband, Cory, and Joel. Hot off the presses this December, they gained a new addition to their family with the birth of their first grandchild.
In this Episode, we discuss:
- Stacey’s journey to servant leadership and how she serves beyond the school walls
- Her experiences serving a learning community for over 30 years and the joy she finds in leading with service
- How knowing herself better serves her to serve others with an open heart,
- And we discover more about what oriented her heart at an early age to service
I loved every single second of this interview with a woman who deeply inspires me. Stacey has been one of the most consistent and loving supporters of the podcast from the beginning, and I am deeply humbled that she would share herself with our community. It is an honor to share with you my friend, Stacey Green’s Service story.
