Hello! My name is Ms. Valentine and I am so excited to be a part of the Vista Peak family! I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I attended Michigan State University and Oakland University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish and English and earned my teaching certification. After graduating, I moved to my favorite place, Colorado. I taught at Spanish at high schools in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Aurora. Last year I lived in Atlanta, Georgia and taught Spanish at a high school there as well, but I missed Colorado and decided to move back after one year. This is my sixth year teaching and I could not be happier to be back in Colorado and working at Vista Peak High School!
I learned Spanish by studying abroad in Segovia, Spain. I traveled all over Spain to experience the culture and immerse myself in the beautiful Spanish language. Besides enjoying Spanish culture, I love to go hiking, running, attend sporting events, and play video games!
This year I will be teaching Spanish 1 and 2. Please e-mail me if you have any questions about the class. Go Bison!
