My name is Tina Maines and I am honored and excited to introduce myself as the new High School Principal. Accepting this position was bitter sweet, but I could not pass up the opportunity to be a leader for a building so compassionate and committed to student excellence. It is my mission to motivate, encourage, support and drive each and every student to continued success while providing opportunities to become life-long learners.
I have spent the last four years here at Cattaraugus-Little Valley as the Director of Special Education. I am thrilled about this new leadership opportunity. Over the last four years I have had the chance to meet many parents and children and look forward to getting to know those of you I have not had the opportunity to interact with. I will continue to build strong relationships with parents, students, staff and the community this upcoming school year.
I value your feedback and ideas and encourage you to reach out to me at any point in the school year. If there is one thing that I have learned over the past four years, it is that CLV represents family, and we problem solve together. I value your input, ideas and creativity. My goal is to educate all children and create an educational atmosphere where everyone feels safe and enjoys learning!
