Aspen teachers support principal

-A A +A

The April 21 story reporting a lawsuit filed by Zeynep Unal against Los Alamos Public Schools and Kathryn Vandenkieboom, principal at Aspen Elementary, was incredibly disheartening.

The article, particularly the wording in the lawsuit, portrayed Kathryn much differently than the child and family advocate we know. We would like readers to know that Kathryn.

Five years ago, when it was announced that Kathryn would lead Aspen as our principal, cheers of joy rang out. We were thrilled to be working with a woman fresh from the classroom and one we all respected to make decisions, ultimately leading Aspen in a positive direction for the children and families in attendance. We have not been disappointed. 

The first striking quality of Kathryn is her diplomatic approach to leadership. 

Hundreds of decisions are made weekly that directly affect staff and students at Aspen, and even though it would be easier to make decisions by herself, she is always sure to hear differing opinions and points of view, ensuring that decisions are thoughtful, represent the greater good, and ultimately are good for children.
