"“Valerie is an administrator whose belief is that critical learning possibilities should be activated NOW in order to prepare students for skills that will make them future ready. This will enable them to compete on a global scale! Students need to lift their voice and advocate for themselves but this skill should be modeled and taught explicitly and consistently. Lessons should be personalized and student-centered and certainly not just based upon the teacher’s ideals and comforts. In this manner, cater to a variety of learning styles. Valerie is an encourager and motivator and has the mentality that the TEAM is better together.
In order to strengthen the team, she understands that learning MUST create IMPACT. The formula should always be ONE SIZE FITS…ONE! She continues on her mission to show that learning is a daring lifelong journey that ultimately…TRANSFORMS."
