    My name is Kelly Valentine and I am a pre-school teacher at Patrick Henry Downtown Academy.

    My career as a teacher began in of 1994 when I graduated from Harris Stowe State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I went on to teach preschool for 16 years and loved it!  I decided to stretch my wings and move up to kindergarten.  What a great experience.  I so enjoyed seeing my students learn and begin to “put things together”.  The early years are so important and I feel privileged to be a part of my student’s education, and now I am back in the preschool department!
