Principal’s Message

Kelley Becker 2015-16
Dear Unsworth Families,

I am so honored and proud to lead the Unsworth community as your Principal. Often described as the “hidden gem” of Downey, Unsworth is an exceptional place where all children have the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally, and academically in a safe and positive learning environment. Our small school setting and generous parent involvement create a tight-knit community feel.

The Unsworth staff is dedicated, and genuinely cares about our students. In addition to providing a rigorous academic setting, our teachers also concentrate their efforts to ensure that our students are good communicators, great thinkers, and children of character. We will concentrate all efforts towards ensuring each and every child’s 21st century skills are strengthened through rigorous, relevant, Common Core-aligned instruction, use of data to inform instruction, and consistent implementation of the District’s instructional initiatives to increase student achievement.

Communication between home and school is critical. Please reach out to your child’s teacher, to our office staff, or to me with any questions or concerns you may have. TOGETHER we will make this a fantastic year for our students!

Respectfully yours, Mrs. Kelley Rush-Becker
