Greenwich Public Schools
Hear from Erin Montague about being an educator in the Greenwich school system.
Meet Erin Montague
I am very proud to work in Greenwich as we have a very special and diverse community. Our students and educators bring varying life experiences and academic skills to the classroom, welcoming educational lessons beyond the district curriculum.

Why I Teach
Outside of our homes, children need adults at school who will be champions for them. My goal is to get to know each of my students, their background and families, goals and dreams, and then be a consistent and honest cheerleader for them as they journey toward their goals. When students are a partner in the decisions made about and around them, are held accountable, and can actively voice how they feel, we are enabling them with transferable life skills required in more than an educational setting. I believe that if we model clear and high expectations for academic habits and positive, respectful behaviors, I have no doubt that our students can and will rise to meet them. I am a counselor so that I can be who I needed when I was younger
