Welcome to Discovery School! My name is Ms. Valencia Durón and I will have the pleasure of teaching your child this year. I have been working at Discovery School for the past 20 years. I have been teaching for a total of 14 years. My undergraduate studies in Pedagogy took place at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras and I have a Masters degree in Multidisciplinary Studies from the University of New York at Buffalo It is my belief that a child's success is based on a cooperative parent/teacher relationship. I look forward to working with you throughout the year.
I hope you and your child enjoyed the summer and that you are ready to embark on an important milestone in your child's life. First Grade is a year of growing socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Your involvement, interest, and enthusiasm will help make this a wonderful year of growth for you and your child.
At this early stage of learning, it is important to set routines in your child's life. Try to set aside time each day to discuss what your child did in school.
I feel that my greatest contribution so far in education has been serving my students to the best of my ability and being an advocate for their education.
Thank you for entrusting your child to me,
Ms. Valencia Durón
