Miss Valerie Shaffer

Welcome to Art Jackson Jaguars!!!


This is my first official year teaching art and I am beyond excited to become apart of the Jackson family.

Being in a military family, I was born in Alaska, grew up in California and Florida before moving to Texas. I spent most of my school years in Del Rio, a small border town in TX and moved to Dallas in 2007. 

Ever since I was a little girl my dream job was to be an elementary art teacher. To make that dream come true I attended the University of North Texas in Denton where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art Studies and minored in Art History. 

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my daughter and our dog. We love to travel, go to museums and explore hiking trails.

 I believe art is not only a great form of expression but also very theraputic. I cannot wait for us to start creating art together!
