National Associate Principals Month: Thomas Walters

National Associate Principals Month: Thomas Walters

Why did you choose education?

This is my eighth year in the district and each year I'm more and more impressed with the devotion and dedication of our staff! When working with teachers and staff and watching the care and professionalism they show each day, it reminds me why I got into education. It’s all about making a difference in the lives of the kids we work with each and every day! Building those strong relationships so that kids have the best chance of personal success is so rewarding!

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

I truly believe that we are the dream business. Getting to deeply know our students and families provides us an opportunity to connect and find pathways so they can be inspired to achieve their personal dreams! We are all natural learners and have unique interests and passions, and if we can keep curiosity alive in all of our interactions and decision-making, then we have a chance for dreams to flourish and build a better world! And a fresh pot of coffee doesn’t hurt either. 

Stay tuned for more stories about our wonderful associate principals!
