This is the first of two interviews conducted with Dr. Valdovinos-Bhatia. At the time of the interview, she was the new principal of Sunnydale Elementary School located at 716 Sunnydale Blvd, Streamwood, IL 60107. She is the first Latinx to hold this position in this primarily Hispanic community. The interview was held in the school's conference room. It was conducted after hours to avoid any disruption from teachers or students. The only interruptions are the sounds of the bell and occasional turning of pages.
