Mrs. Valerie Felty

Hello!  My name is Valerie Felty, and I am a Kindergarten Teacher at Shepard Elementary!  This year marks my 9th year in public education and my 6th year at Shepard!  In the past, I have enjoyed teaching kindergarten, 4th, and 5th grade, in addition to working with children of all ages in a variety of other settings.  I am so excited to meet our new kindergarteners this year!

I grew up in Grapevine, Texas, and graduated high school from Grapevine High School in 1992.  I attended college at Abilene Christian University (Go Wildcats!) where I obtained a Bachelors Degree in Social Work.  A few years later, I obtained my teaching certificate and am certified to teach PK-8th Grade.  

My husband Mark and I live here in Plano with our two sons, Tristan (12) and Lucas (11), who are Wilson Rams this year!  We also have two cats and two dogs!  Great things come in twos I guess!  We love living in the Plano community and enjoying all Plano has to offer!  In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, going fishing, experimenting with new recipes, trying new restaurants, and hanging out with my family!  

I look forward to another year of forming new relationships with the awesome students of Shepard Elementary!  We're Better Together!
