Early Preschool Teacher (2 year olds)
Connie Hermann has been an educator for 35 years. She was the owner/operator of a Missouri State Licensed Daycare for 16 years before joining the Valle Catholic family.

She has been certified in CPR and First Aid for over 30 years.
My mother, brother, and two sisters, along with my three children are all graduates of Valle Catholic Schools. I am proud to say I was a part of the team that started the Valle Catholic Preschool program in August 2004. I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes two grandsons, Ace and William.
In my spare time, I like to travel with my family and close friends.
What do you love most about teaching at Valle Catholic?
“I love that I get to teach religion to the little ones. I teach them prayers, and we read stories from the Old and New Testaments. I love the family atmosphere at Valle Catholic and getting to watch the kids grow in not only size and academically, but also socially. It’s amazing to watch the growth each and every day … year in and year out.”
Why is Catholic education important?
“Catholic education is very important for the spiritual, academic and social growth of the child. A quality Catholic education can give students a solid foundation in academics. It prepares them well for college and careers, and can give them a sound spiritual foundation to prepare them for life. Students have a place to grow and thrive as a whole person.”
