From Student to Principal, Education is the Key


Angie Valdez

Angie Aldaco Valdez, a 1992 graduate and Plainview native, received her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and her Master’s in Administration from Wayland.

She’s currently the Principal at Edgemere Elementary, the same school at which she attended first grade. She plans to soon retire.

Valdez was able to earn her master’s degree through a scholarship Wayland offered, and she gives Wayland credit for shaping her into the teacher that she is today.

“I learned so much from Dr. Buckley Qualls and Dr. Dana West. They made the classes practical to my career and I felt successful!”
