Hi, my name is Lesha Valencia! I am so excited to be teaching only Math and Science this year and teaming with Mrs. Lytle! This is my 10th year of teaching. I taught 2nd grade for 3 years and this is my 7th year to teach 3rd grade! I taught at Coder Elementary for my first year and then moved to McCall, when it opened. I graduated from the University of North Texas, where I was a Zeta Tau Alpha. I was born in Arlington, TX, but moved to Aledo in the 7th grade. I was a cheerleader for Aledo in middle school and high school. I also taught cheerleading and gymnastics for 8 years. I am one of the Aledo Middle School Cheer Sponsors. I love cheerleading, singing, cooking and crafting. I have four dogs named Dasher, Daisy, Ace, and Addie. I have a wonderful husband named Scott, who works at Texas Air Systems in Irving. I love spending time with my husband, family, and friends! I love teaching and inspiring kids everyday!
Two inspiring teaching quotes for me are:
"They may forget what you said, but they will never forget the way you made them feel!"
"The best teachers are the ones with the biggest hearts!"
