My name is Valerie Smith and I am so excited to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher! I received a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida in 2004, and began my teaching career in Florida. After almost four years of teaching I became a stay at home mom to my two children. Both my son and daughter have been students of Kennesaw Elementary. My husband and I have loved the growth and education we have seen at KES, and now I am so excited to be a part of the Kindergarten team this year. I look forward to working with both you and your child throughout this school year.
