I cannot think of a more deserving person for this award. Trish truly impacts the lives of everyone around her with her genuine kindness, leadership and friendship. She is a true Treasure Hunter who believes ALL children are capable of success, no exception. ?? She is one of the kindest people I know.
Trish has been a blessing to many including my family. She has been a supporter of my wife and encouraged her to pursue further education in order to become a SPED teacher. I have watched Trsih inspire and encourage others too. She is a blessing to this community.
You are seriously the best! Love and miss you!
We love Mrs. Valentin. We have been blessed to have her as our principal since my daughter started kindergarten! Her smile is contagious and to see all the kids give her daily hugs is amazing! She gives herself to her students and staff unconditionally!!!
In my years as a governing board member, I have seen Trish grow from a young inexperienced teacher into an exemplary administrator, leader and role model in the Crane School District. One of the things I admire most about Trish is her willingness to step fearlessly out of her comfort zone and take on new challenges. Rather than become comfortable with her success, she continuously adds new tools to the toolbox that makes her so good at what she does. When you couple her excellent job skills with her positive, caring and compassionate nature, work ethic and passion for education, you have an unbeatable force of nature. Our district family and community love and value Trish more than I can say.
Trish is more than deserving of this award! Her philosophy of finding the treasure in each child at HLSuverkrup is evident each day ! Students love and respect her and she’s transformed many little lives for the better. I’m proud to work alongside such a heartwarming and dedicated role model! May today’s success be the beginning of tomorrow’s achievements. ??????
Trish, is amazing Principal! She is definitely a Life Changer, she has touched so many teachers, students and families lives we are so grateful to have her in our community! Thank you for your amazing example of kindness and compassion. Congratulations!!! ??
Mrs. Valentin personifies the merger of hope and love. Her continuous attention to ensuring that all students who walk through the doors of her school have equal access to the opportunity for success, regardless of the trauma or circumstances that surrounds them, remains her focus. Through this passion, it provides a community culture where staff members are eager to collaborate with her in the development of critical skills for the students for which they all serve. Her innovative techniques and strategies for partnering with internal and external organizations who share the same belief, aligning to the structure of "Kids at Hope", that all students are capable of success without exception has been an essential component at HL Suverkrup Elementary School. Mrs. Valentin's willingness to empower her staff, permitting the practitioners to help determine the best methodology for learning and delivery of instruction, allows them to implement creative concepts that transform how instruction and classroom learning is provided through a more dynamic and engaging process. Mrs. Valentin, a humble leader and exceptional colleague, is most deserving of this recognition with providing previous, current and future students with the life changing opportunities necessary for overall success.
Trish was the first person to greet me when I arrived at training my first year in Crane (2003!). Her huge smile and words, “THERE you are!” are what I remember from that anxiety-filled arrival. I was immediately set at ease, and have been with Crane ever since.
Mrs.Valentine has been amazing in handling situations that have occurred with my son. She has been compassionate and caring. I am beyond happy my children attend HLS I wouldn’t haven’t any other way.
Ms. Valentin is the ultimate school principal with a sincerely honest love for her students and their parents. She is a model for all teachers, principals (parents and students) as she lives “unconditional love”.
Mrs. Valentin is the most loving and caring person to whoever comes across her. She made my son feel like he was the most important child at HLS. Even as he moved into junior high she made it a point to follow up and make sure he was doing ok. We will forever be grateful for everything she did for him.
Congratulations on this beautiful honor.
This woman has inspired me in more ways than words can describe. She is strong yet loving. She is relentless when it comes to children. Regardless of the challenge she is faves with she ALWAYS remains calm, focused, and remembers her “WHY”.... helping children. She in a true inspiration and life changer. I know first hand because knowing her has changed my life and inspired me to just be a better human being.

Trish Valentine is one of the kindest, most supportive individuals I have the privilege of calling friend and colleague. Trish, you change others’ lives every day with how you care and lift them up. You are completely, hands down the most deserving recipient of this nomination.
What an awesome educator!!! Walking the walk, talking the talk. Yuma is lucky to have Trush and other high-powered educators who believe in the potential of all children.
What a wonderful description of an empowering leader. As a 33 year veteran teacher I would be thrilled to work for her. She has the students' best interest at heart. Good luck Ms. Valentin.
You are amazing and a winner in my eyes!
Dedicated, caring, passionate educator is just the few of the amazing words to describe her.
