Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Valerie Willis and I began teaching at CTA-Liberty in 2008. I'm looking forward to another great year learning and growing with my third graders! My husband and I moved to Arizona from northern Michigan in 2007. We have three children that all attend school within CUSD. When I'm not at school I like to watch my kids play sports and spend time at home barbecuing and relaxing!!

My Education and Professional Background

I've taught in a variety of classrooms using various curriculum models but the traditional classroom has proven to me, as both an educator and a parent, the most beneficial to students. I love the structure of a traditional classroom because it allows students clear expectations of what they need to achieve and how to achieve it.The bar is set high and through hard work and productive struggle students leave our school with the tools to be successful.

My Educational Philosophy

I've always been a child advocate and believe that each child possesses strong leadership qualities that may yet be discovered. It's been my honor to help students acquire new knowledge, confirm their positive attributes and take them from the unknown to the known.
