Please join us in recognizing Valora Unowsky, Associate Principal of Eden Lake Elementary, for National Associate Principals Month. We asked Valora a few questions about her motivations as an educator and leader. Here are her responses:
Why did you choose education?
I chose education to make a difference for children. My parents were both educators, and their example of working tirelessly so that all of their students reached their potential was inspiring to me. As a teacher, instructional coach, district leader, and now associate principal, I believe it is my responsibility to ensure that all of our students achieve to the highest levels. It is an incredible privilege to work in this demanding and rewarding field!
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
I love coming to work every day! I work with the greatest staff and students in the world. Every single day, I am amazed by our students and I'm in awe of how hard our teachers work to meet their needs. The talent and dedication of the adults at Eden Lake is beyond compare. It is such a pleasure to work with such caring professionals and such amazing students!
