My name is Nikos Papadopoulos and I was born and raised in the U.S. I am the new Principal of the Early Years and Elementary schools here at Pinewood. I hold a Masters of Educational Leadership from California State University. My son, Joey, is attending his first year at Bradley University in Illinois. I have taught both elementary and secondary school and have held many leadership positions for 18 years. Recently, I built a successful STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program at my last school in California and taught both Robotics and Engineering classes.
