Mrs. Nina D. Slade

I am delighted to be the Assistant Principal at The Nantucket Elementary School. I am the mother of four children who have attended the Nantucket Public Schools. I am married and have called Nantucket my home for the past 33 years.

I have been employed with the Nantucket Public School System since 1985, and have served as the Assistant Principal for the past 10 years. Earlier in my career, I taught first through fifth grades, Reading Recovery, and served as an Administrative Intern working with the Superintendent. By teaching grades 1-5, and serving as a Reading Specialist, I have been able to gain classroom experience and knowledge that has allowed me to thoroughly understand the flow of curriculum across the grade levels, along with understanding the developmental levels of children.

Professionally I am involved with numerous organizations such as The International Reading Association, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, and the Massachusetts School Administrators Association.

During my spare time, I enjoy cheering for the Bruins, going to the beach, traveling, hiking, skiing, gardening, cooking, and generally, just spending time with my family.    

I am very honored to serve as the Assistant Principal of Nantucket Elementary School. I love working within the community where I live and have raised my family. It is a joy to work daily with our staff and parents to meet the learning needs of all of our students.  

If there is anything I can do to support your child, please feel free to schedule a time to meet with me.
