Dr. Valerie Hinsen

I am so ecstatic to begin my 28th year in education!  WOW...I can't believe I've been able to do what I love for that long!  I came home from my first day of kindergarten and told my mom I wanted to be a teacher and I have never looked back!  This is my 4th year at Draper Intermediate and in Wylie ISD.  I have also taught in Allen, Dallas, Richardson and Atlanta, Georgia.  Teaching is my calling; I feel blessed to spend my days with my students!

My incredible husband, Bryan, and I have three amazing children:  Larry, Avontae and Rachelle.  We are also foster parents, so we are always surrounded by precious kiddos!  We love to just play, be goofy and silly, watch movies, and love on our 15 year old furbaby, Baxter Bear.   We stand in awe of the life God has woven together for us. 

I am very excited about our upcoming year together!
