What do you love most about teaching at Valle Catholic?
“Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I taught in several Catholic schools before coming to Valle. I loved every one of my Catholic school experiences. But when I started teaching at Valle, it was a love like no other. It felt like “HOME”. My husband and I graduated from Valle, as did our three children. Valle holds a lot of memories. Entering classrooms, walking the halls, eating in the cafeteria, pep rallies in the gym and continuing traditions from past generations makes us a unique family that truly cares for each other. “Forever a Warrior” is not just a cliche but the true spirit of all who enter into the Valle family.”

To our students …
“Valle is a place where learning happens, memories are made and love is felt deeply! Everyday you can dream big and work hard and be You!  YOU matter to me! Welcome to Valle!”
