Mrs. Megan Valera
I am orginially from Rochester, New York where I earned both my Bachelor and Masters Degrees. My husband, Francis, and I moved to Virginia six years ago, and absolutely love it! We live in the neighborhood with our French Bulldog, Bruno. He's the cutest! When I am not teaching, I enjoy playing with Bruno, exercising, hiking, tennis, reading, trying new foods, lounging at the pool/beach, traveling, and rooting for the Syracuse Orangemen!
I absolutely love kids! I think most of that passion stems from the fact that I am the oldest of three, and I have a large extended family full of young cousins and teachers. When I was little, I loved playing "school" and helping my grandfather grade his schoolwork. Teaching is truly my passion.
We are in for an amazing year together! I can't wait to meet YOU!
