Assistant Principal Russell Paperman

I am very excited to join the Sunrise community. My main goal at Sunrise is to help students prepare for the next level in their education in a positive and safe environment. I make myself openly available to parents and students.

This year, I am starting my ninth year as a school administrator and my seventh year in Paradise Valley Unified. I am originally from New York City. I got my Bachelor's Degree with Honors at City University of New York and started my teaching career in New York City Schools. I moved to Arizona in 2003. I received my Master's Degree at ASU in Educational Leadership and Supervision. 

There are several things that your student can do to help promote success in school and practice the skills of success for adulthood. Some of those things include: good attendance, punctuality, preparedness and keeping a positive attitude. As a former business owner and athletic coach, I can say that making good habits a part of your student's lifestyle will greatly support his/her ability to be successful in all of life's endeavors. 

I look forward to a great year,

Russell Paperman
