What makes Mrs. Krukowski proud to be a Warrior? "I am proud to have 
worked with so many wonderful people at Chenango Valley; from the Little Warriors who have taught me about patience, humor and perseverance to the most amazing colleagues who have helped shape and educate my own two children and given me so much support on a professional and personal level."
 
Advice/Inspirational Quote: "Be kind to one another!"
 
Cherie Lange
 Cherie Lange has worked at Chenango Valley for 22 years. Her roles have included social studies teacher, student council advisor, seventh grade class advisor, YES Leads advisor, and CVTA officer (President for the past three years).
 
What makes Mrs. Lange proud to be a Warrior? "As a district resident and mother of two grown sons, the CV community has been a rewarding place to raise my children. They had a superior education at Chenango Valley, having the opportunity to learn and grow with amazing teachers and coaches. I have been fortunate to be a part of the educational system here. I also have had the privilege to work with some of the most dedicated, innovative professionals in the educational field. Some of them have become life-long friends, and many are just awe inspiring colleagues that work countless hours to be the best they can be for their students. Lastly, the students have done more to teach me over the years than I have taught them. As I have watched countless children grow over the years into productive, caring adults, there can be no better reward as a teacher. I cannot express how thankful I am to have been a part of the CV Warrior community and my role as a middle school teacher."
 
Cindy Moody
Cindy Moody worked for Chenango Valley for 21.5 years. For 11 years, 1994 through 2006, she was a classroom teacher aide. The next 10.5 years, she was a secretary (senior typist) in the Chenango Valley Middle School main office.
 
What makes Mrs. Moody proud to be a Warrior? "I am proud to be a Warrior because my husband and children went to school and graduated from CV. Now my Granddaughter attends CV. I felt honored to work at a place where I had become good friends with so many coworkers who were so kind and caring for all children and colleagues. Children definitely come first from administrators down to the custodians."
 
Sue Perry
Sue Perry has worked at Chenango Valley Middle School and High School for 26 years. She's been a Latin teacher for all that time. Mrs. Fox was the teacher before her, who also taught Latin for many years.
 
What makes Mrs. Perry proud to be a Warrior? "I've always been proud to say I'm a Chenango Valley teacher because it is known as one of the finest, and is, in my opinion, absolutely the finest school in the area, on every level you can think of. And of course, it's the only school district in the area with a Latin program, which is going to continue forever! Chenango Valley students are the brightest and the best!"
 
Advice/Inspirational Quote: "I don't see myself as being terribly wise, but I guess I would say, based on my own experience, if you have something you're really good at, and you love doing it (like talking to young people about Latin and the Romans all day long, for example) just follow your destiny and do everything you can to make sure you do the job you were meant to do. There will always be people who are negative and who will give you many reasons why you can't do it, but don't listen! The fates will find a way! And when you have a job you love, the years fly by, as they've done for me."

Judy Phillips has worked at Chenango Valley since 1993. She worked at Port Dickinson Elementary School and at Chenango Bridge Elementary School as a teacher aide in the classroom for 23 years. The last four years, she was the computer lab aide for Chenango Valley Middle School.

What makes Mr. Pritchard proud to be a Warrior? "During my time at Chenango Valley, I have made a lot of good friends and worked with a fantastic group of dedicated people. I have also met a lot of wonderful families. I am proud to be a Warrior, and proud that I was able to be a large part of the education of the students at Chenango Valley.

Advice/Inspirational Quote: "If I had one last piece of advice for my colleagues and my students it would be: Don't let other people's opinion of you form who you will be. If in your heart and soul you know your actions are right, stay true to your convictions. Your true friends will always stand by you while the rest who don't are merely actors playing out their parts in the story that is your life."
