About Valerie

I am currently a certified substitute teacher. I have over twelve years of teaching experience. I have enjoyed working with all types of students (including Special Education).

My favorite experiences are those times when a student, who is struggling, finally understands! It is joy for the student and for me! I know I have done my job.

I majored in English in college. I have over 10 years in proofreading and copy editing experience including freelance work with publishers (Harcourt and Brace). I have experience as a substitute teacher and a freelance writer. I am currently writing a children's book. For three years, I was the head of the children's department at a public library. I understand the need to be able to read and comprehend what was read. I also understand many children hate reading. There is a book for everyone!

Learning can be fun! I love to see when a student understands or tells me he is struggling. I take the stress out of learning. If there is stress, this wall of fear only hinders the child.
