Assistant Principal

Valerie Burrow, Assistant Principal
Hello Silver Valley and Denton Elementary Schools! I am excited to have the opportunity to serve our students, parents and teachers of Silver Valley and Denton.  I am originally from Lowgap, NC and moved to Midway in 2007 after graduating from Lees McRae University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education K-6.  After 8 years of teaching 4th and 5th grade, I returned to college and completed my Master's in School Administration from Appalachian State University in 2017. 
As your assistant principal my first priority is to create a positive and supportive learning environment for your child.  I am also here to ensure your child receives a quality education that inspires them to grow as a learner.  As the bus coordinator, I have the responsibility of providing safe and efficient bus transportation to and from school.  Finally, I want parents to know that I am here for you as well.  You are a critical part of our team and together we are responsible for your child's education.   
I want to thank each of you for your support and warm welcome!
