Home of the Mighty Rockets !!!
I am excited to begin my 32nd 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 & 2 utilizing Block Schedule.
I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas to Santos and Elodia Valdez, wonderful and nurturing parent's who instilled the importance of obtaining 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 along with a Language & Learning Disabilities Endorsement.
I have been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband Roland and we have a beautiful 17 year-old daughter Marina along with "Pookie" our Chihuahua. I enjoy reading, cooking and spending time with my immediate and extended families. I have been truly blessed with the opportunity to continue working with Edgewood student's, parent's and community.
