My name is Valerie Maldonado and I will be your child's 1st grade teacher this year!

This will be my 4th year teaching first grade at Mark Twain! I attended the University of Houston - Downtown and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. I have an adorable dog named Brie and I enjoy spending my extra time with her.

This school year will be filled with fun, lots of learning and new adventures!
