Varela, Valerie

Hello.  My name is Valerie Varela and I've been teaching Elementary Education for the past 8 years.  I have experience teaching kindergarten and 1st grade and I currently teach 1st grade Monolingual at Lamar Elementary School.  I've taught at 2 different school districts.  I attended UTEP and received my BA degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (General Education) EC-4 in 2006. 

My job is to help my students succeed in all areas.  I am here to support them and motivate them to want to learn.  I am here to remind the kids how important they are.  I want them to know they serve a huge purpose in my classroom.  I want them to know they matter.  Motivating them to come to school everyday and providing a loving, caring and structured environment, makes it easier to help get them where they need to be by the end of the year.


Please feel free to contact me by email vvarela@episd.org with any comments or concerns.  I will always try my best to return your email within an appropriate timeframe.  I am located in room 114 if you ever feel the need to conference with me. 

Best Regards,

Valerie Varela
