Mrs. Alyson Ewald

Hello! My name is Alyson Ewald and I am the Principal at Jonas Salk Elementary School. 

Although this is my first year at Jonas Salk I have been with the Valley View School District since 2003. Prior to joining Salk I taught 4th grade at R. C. Hill, was the Assistant Principal for four years and the Principal for six years. Before working in the Valley View School District I taught in Chicago Public Schools. I'm very excited to join the Jonas Salk team! 

I am a proud alumni of Eastern Illinois University where I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I earned my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership at North Central College. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Matt, and my two children, Abby & Ben. I also enjoy reading & going to the movies. 

My goal as the Principal is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment that empowers all students to be college and career ready as well as support students to grow and achieve as productive citizens. I am confident Jonas Salk will continue to be a place where our students can learn and grow academically, socially and emotionally by providing a productive, safe and secure learning environment with high expectations. 

I look forward to working with you to provide our students a challenging and enriching school experience. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns or ideas you would like to discuss. I look forward to meeting you soon!
