Valerie Rice

This is my first year at Symons Elementary and my seventh year working in special education.  I am excited to be part of a community that fosters inclusion among all learners and look forward to working with other teachers to ensure your child's needs are being met inside the classroom.  As a teacher consultant, it is my role to support grade level teachers with positive behavior supports, modified curriculum, and intervention.  I believe that the classroom and curriculum should be accessible and meaningful to all students and enjoy collaborating with my colleagues to find creative ways to reach all learners.

My husband and I recently bought a house just outside of Milan.  We spend much of our time updating and remodeling our home, as well as exploring the new neighborhood with our chihuahua, Little Aaron Rodgers.  As you can guess, we are big Green Bay Packer fans!  I also enjoy reading, spending time with our extended family, and traveling.
