Mrs. Stephanie Valeri
I am a graduate of Bridgewater State University where I earned my undergraduate degree in English and Secondary Education. I also recently earned my master's degree in English Literature at SNHU. Being a certified educator in the state of Massachusetts has granted me a little over twenty years of experience in various educational settings and grade levels. I also have extensive background in reading intervention and standardized test preparation.
Originally from Western Massachusetts, I came to Christ at a young age and served in the local church throughout my teen years. During college, I determined to know the Word for myself and became involved in discipleship and student leadership at the Christian fellowship campus group at BSU. I had, and still have, a heart for teens and young adults seeking God. After graduating and beginning my teaching career, I met and later married my husband Dan. He is an ordained minister and Fire Chaplain for the town of Southwick. We have served the Lord together in ministry for twenty-two years and have two teenagers, Nathan and Erica, and a dog named Sawyer.
The Lord has called me to be an equipper, and this is the main reason I enjoy education and teaching. It is my passion to be able to provide individuals with whatever knowledge, information, and tools they need to enable them to achieve the next steps in their life journeys. There is nothing that excites me more than to help young people find their way to fulfill their dreams and calling in Christ.
Psalm 27:4: "One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD, and to seek him in his temple."
