Principal, Matthew Arnold

Greetings, Green families! I am very excited to join the Green Team this year as Principal. Green Central is a great place to be for students, staff, and families. I look forward to partnering with you this school year to help all of our students grow.

I am originally from St. Cloud, MN and attended St. John's University in Collegeville, MN. I began teaching in New York City and most recently was Dean of Students at Highland Elementary in Columbia Heights Public Schools. I live in Minneapolis and enjoy the lakes, parks, and cultural offerings of the Twin Cities. I am passionate about ensuring that all Minneapolis students receive an equitable and excellent education.
¡También, hablo español!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me - I am here to serve our students, families, and staff.
