Support Person of the Year
Mr. Paul Woldanski
Mr. Paul has worked at Eagleswood Elementary School since 2003. Prior to that, he was enlisted in the United States Navy, and has worked for the US Postal Service and the Federal Aviation Administration. One of Mr. Paul’s favorite parts of the job is his interaction with the students and that he is able to see his two grandsons each day. Over the years, Mr. Paul has seen many faces and changes pass through our school and is proud to be a part of this caring community. He says, “A major part of this job is to be a Jack-of-all-trades, from catching a spider in the office to fixing a leaking sink to finding a lost pair of glasses accidentally thrown out with the garbage, you never know what to expect from day to day which keeps the job interesting.” Mr. Paul wishes to thank his peers and school community for the nomination of this award and is truly honored.
