Principal Ehling walking students into the school on the first day.

Welcome Pinewood Families to the new school year! I look forward to learning with you as together we support your child’s learning. Pinewood is proud to be a 1:1 iPad school and uses this technology as a tool in our learning.   We are excited to be implementing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People this year and look forward to creating many new leadership opportunities for students. I always strive to communicate all the great things that are happening at Pinewood and Twitter is one way I do that. Consider following me on Twitter @paehling and using our #pinewoodrps hashtag.

What's the best part about being the Principal?

The best part of being a principal is engaging with students, staff, and families in their path of learning. Being a part of that path of learning is a blessing that I get to experience each and every day.

About Me:

I've worked for Rochester Public Schools for the last 22 years as a teacher and an administrator. Outside of school I love the outdoors and hike, bike, canoe, and ski with family and friends as much as possible.
