Dear Cattaraugus-Little Valley Community,

I would like to introduce myself, Paul Kowalski, as your new Middle School Principal/Technology Integrator. First, I want to say that I am truly humbled, excited and honored to be joining your school and community!

I come to Cattaraugus-Little Valley having most recently served as a Science Teacher and member of the Instructional Leadership Team at Clarence High School in the Clarence Central School District. Previously, I spent 8 of my 11 years in the classroom as a Middle School teacher, teaching students in grades 6, 7 and 8. I have also taught at the Elementary level. I firmly believe that a student’s Middle School years are among the most important in their life, where the foundation is built for their future interests and successes. As an educator, I find the Middle School to be invigorating- the fast-paced environment and energy of students is contagious and pushes me to work harder and challenge myself each and every day!

While I have spent my educational career thus far in northern Erie County, I have deep family roots in Cattaraugus County. I have spent much of my free time since childhood fishing, hunting and camping across the area. My wife and daughters often come along to enjoy the outdoors with me. I am excited to officially be a part of a community that has long felt like home!

One of my goals as Principal is to meet as many parents and community members as I can. In doing so, I hope to gain a better understanding of our school and community,and what I can do in my role to best support you. I invite each of you to provide any input and insight that you feel will help me to best serve your children and our community. I encourage you to call, email, or stop me at a school or community event to introduce yourself. My contact information can be found at the bottom of this page.

Once again, I thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to meeting all of you and partnering with you to bring out the best in your children and in our community.

Most sincerely,

Paul M. Kowalski            

Middle School Principal/Technology Integrator
