When Freer joins the F.P. Walshe team he will be entering his 30th year as an educator.

F.P. Walshe principal Chad Jensen is excited about the addition of Freer to the school’s staff.

“To bring someone with Greg’s experience and skill set into a leadership role at F.P. Walshe school is amazing,” Jensen said. “I look forward to the opportunity to work with Greg, and his collaborative student-first approach is going to be a welcome addition to our team.”

Freer shared his educational and leadership philosophy.

“I believe everyone brings something to the table and I value learning from others as I continue to grow,” Freer said. “With this move to F.P. Walshe I look forward to interacting with new stakeholders in education, further enhancing my growth.“

Outside of school, Freer has trained for several years as a martial artist and now pursues mountain biking.
