Miss Valentine


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.  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, and his wife, Shelly, are both Federal Bank Examiners.  I also have the most adorable nephew, Owen. 

I graduated High School in Ravenna, NE 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!  In 2014, I graduated from Chadron State College with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education.  In 2018, I graduated with my Masters Degree in Educational Technology from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. I love the diversity that comes with all ages and stages of learners!

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to have you
in my classroom! Feel free to contact me with any
concerns or questions!
