By assigning authentic research projects, encouraging higher-order thinking, and maintaining high expectations, Mr. Greiner motivates each of his students to excel.

As a mentor teacher, Mr. Greiner shares his wealth of best practices and classroom strategies with new educators and has received numerous honors for his instructional and community leadership.

Personal Message

Greetings! I am honored to be a Milken Educator and to have worked with the Youth Foundation on our grant at James M. Bennett High School. I am very interested in how to improve student's learning and also how brain science and technology can be used to dramatically alter the way we teach and children learn. Currently I am very interested in the Montessori Program especially in the High Schools. I have been displaced by Hurricane Katrina and am looking to find a fulfilling and challenging new avenue for my growth and that of students!
