Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Valerie Benitez
Hello! I am so glad you are here. A little about me...I grew up in Washington State with my two brothers and my parents. My brothers and I lived and loved the outdoors! Then we transfered to Texas and boy was that a weather shock to the system! In High School I played in the band, was a part of the National Spanish honor society and took Spanish as well as a year of French. I love learning new things!
I graduated from the University of North Texas with a major in Spanish and a minor in Education. I obtained my MBA degree in Educational Leadership from LeTourneau University a few years later. I am a certified 6-12 Spanish teacher as well as a certified K-12 Principal.
Some of my goals are to help students see the world beyond their own lives, to help students see that they are valued and cared for and to help create a spark in them to love to learn.
One of my favorite verses is Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you an not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
Have a wonderful day and strive to do your best!
