Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Valerie Sette
Welcome to 1st Grade! I have been a teacher at Homestead Elementary since it first opened in 2002 and have been a first grade teacher for 16 years.
In December 2000, I graduated from Illinois State University in Normal, IL with my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Speech Pathology and middle school endorsements in language arts and social science. In 2008, I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University and earned my Master’s Degree in Reading Education (Reading Specialist Type 10). I have continued my education during summer by taking graduate courses through Aurora University and professional development courses online through University of La Verne.
I love being a first grade teacher and look forward to going to school every morning. I enjoy the little things each day brings working with first graders. They love being at school and learning as much as I enjoy watching them learn and grow. I look forward to a great year!
