Dr. Declan O'Connor

Executive Principal, Impact Prep

As a twenty-five year educator in the Springfield Public Schools and an Ivy League doctoral graduate, I recognized both the daily challenges students face as well as the opportunities that await them. Like many Springfield students, I came from humble beginnings and it was dedicated teachers who boosted my confidence and shaped my identity as a lifelong learner. Because of this I am committed to providing students with inspired teaching, by a culturally diverse teaching staff, that will foster our students' continued confidence and growth as learners. In this way I can provide all students with the necessary balance of support and high expectations that will position students for long term academic success.
