Welcome to Kindergarten!
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, My name is Miss Valentine and I am very excited to be your kindergarten teacher! Longfellow Elementary School is a very special place where you can learn everything you need to know so you can reach your goals and your dreams. It is going to be a fun year with lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I am originally from Ravenna, NE and grew up on our family farm 10 miles outside of town. I am the youngest of two. My Dad works for the USDA, my Mom works as an extension agent, and my brother, Levi, is a Federal bank examiner.
I graduated from Ravenna High School and when searching for the right college, I fell in love with western Nebraska and thought there was no better place for me to attend college!
I graduated from Chadron State College with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I love the diversity that comes with all ages and stages of learners!
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to have your student in my classroom! Feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions!
