Dr. Valerie Hinsen
My name is Dr. Valerie Hinsen. I am privileged to teach 6th Grade Social Studies this year. This 2018-2019 school year will be my 26th year of teaching! 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 will be my second 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!
When I am not teaching, I love to sing, read, and just be goofy. Most of all, I love to spend time with my amazing family! I adore my husband, Bryan and our 3 kids, Larry, Avontae and Rachelle.
I am very excited about our upcoming year together!
