John Adams, Principal

Hello! My Name is John Adams and I am the principal at Midlands Green Charter School. I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and obtained a Masters of Education degree from the University of Dayton, OH. This specialty area informs my leadership and teaching approach.
I began working as a computer teacher in 2001. I taught for eight years in Ohio. After being the Assistant Principal in the district, I joined Concept Schools as the Principal for 2011-2019.
I view a collaborative school environment as the key to build successful teachers and students. It is my personal commitment in life to make changes for improvement, to work hard, and to do my best in every situation. These beliefs guide my connections with all students, families, and school staff; consistently building upon strengths in all. I believe that leading by example and treating all people with respect, feeds and facilitates growth. As an instructional leader, I hold that all students can learn and achieve educational goals when meaningful relationships exist within their school and school-community. These beliefs and practices establish clear expectations and standards common for all.


Beth Poore, Assistant Principal

Mrs. Beth Poore - Assistant Principal
I love Green Charter School! This is my third year serving as the assistant principal, and I absolutely love it. Professionally, I’ve worked as a 5th grade teacher, curriculum coordinator, and administrator. Twenty four years have flown by as I’ve earned a BA in elementary education, a Master’s degree in Reading and a second Master’s in Educational Administration.

Your kids are very important to me. I want to ensure that their academic, physical and emotional needs are met everyday. I’ll cheer them on and support them when they need help. Please don’t ever hesitate to reach out if you need me.

I live in Chapin with my husband, Kevin and 3 kids. Anna will be a Junior at Lander, Connor will be a Senior in high school, and Reagan will be a kindergartener at GREEN this year. I love to take naps, read, and spend time with my friends. Thanks for trusting us with your precious students again this year.
