Home of the Mighty Rockets !!!
I am excited to begin my 30th year teaching for the Edgewood School District ALL at John F. Kennedy High School. This school year I will be teaching student's English 1-4 utilizing the Co-Teaching Model.
I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas to wonderful and nurturing parent's Santos and Elodia Valdez, who instilled the importance of an education to their 12 children.
I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education from Texas A&I University in Kingsville,Texas with specializations in Drama and Spanish. I also earned a Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Corpus Christi State University with a specialization in Diagnostic Assessment and a Language & Learning Disabilities Endorsement.
I have been married for 18 years to my wonderful husband Roland and we have a beautiful 16 year-old daughter Marina along with "Pookie" our Chihuahua. I enjoy reading, cooking and spending time with my immediate and extended family. I have been truly blessed for the opportunity to continue working with the student's and parent's of the Edgewood community.
