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!
