My name is Mrs. Valens. I graduated from FIU with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I am ESOL and Gifted endorsed. This will be my tenth year teaching. I developed a love for teaching at a young age and began tutoring at fourteen. Teaching is something that runs in my family. My father was a college math professor and my sister was an elementary school teacher. My family plays a big role in my life and they inspire me every day.
Each day, I strive to help my students reach their goals and be the best they can be. I enjoy using different methods of teaching to engage all of my students. Technology, music and or hands-on learning are often incorporated in many of my lessons.
I am looking forward to an exciting school year!
