Welcome Preschool Families,

      My name is Julie Valek, and I am very excited to be your child’s preschool teacher this year!

      I have always taught Early Childhood Education and I love this age.  I have been working with the Higley School District since 2008. All my previous teaching was done in a suburb of Chicago, where I am originally from. I look forward to working with all of the families, to lay a strong foundation for your child’s future. Teaching is my passion.  I love watching children grow and make connections.  I feel that Kinder Prep is an important year for students.  It is when they will begin to form their first opinions about school and themselves as learners.   As a team, we will make this school year special for your child!

       During my free time from school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have three children with ages ranging from 13-22. We love to swim, hike, and take day trips throughout the state. Our favorite vacation spot in Arizona is Sedona.

      Kinder prep is an amazing class to teach.  I look forward to all the fun challenges and exciting adventures we will have.   I plan on having a wonderful year with you and your child in room 123!
