• Greetings Wadsworth Families,

                Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Mrs. Ann Marie Jaros and I am honored and privileged to serve as the new Principal of Wadsworth Elementary School.

                I began my journey as a student of Merrillville High School, then I attended Ball State University (where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education). During my early teaching career, I earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University Northwest. After several years of teaching, I earned a second Master’s degree in Secondary Education/Administration. The past six years I have served as an Assistant Principal (in another district).

                I am excited to begin a new chapter in my career with the Griffith Public Schools. I look forward to building new relationships with staff, students, families and community members. My goal as Principal of Wadsworth is to guide and support our staff and students to reach their highest potentials, in a safe and nurturing environment.

                Please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself. Together we can make a difference!

    Your Partner in Education,


    Mrs. Ann Marie Jaros
