About Valerie

About Valerie
I am an energetic person, who loves to teach. I am one of those people that wake up and are happy to go to work! I absolutely love being able to send students of today on the road to tomorrow and giving them the confidence to do so. Everyone learns at a different pace and in a different way, the key is to figure out which way you need to learn and proceed from that point.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have taught middle school reading/language for two years. I then moved onto special education, and taught learning support for five years, and then went onto life skills in the special education realm for the past two years. Again, I love my job and I love giving every student an opportunity to shine.
