    My name is Valerie Middlebrooks and I am excited to be your child's teacher this 2018-19 school year!   I have been teaching for 25 years and have had the privilege of teaching kindergarten, first, third, and fourth grades over the years. I taught in Fulton County for the first nine years and moved to Henry County in 2001.  This is my fourteenth year at Dutchtown Elementary.
     
    I graduated from GA State University with an undergraduate degree in early childhood education and a master's degree in educational leadership.  I believe that lifelong learning is the key to many possibilities in life.  
     
    On a personal note, I have a wonderful daughter, Marlee, who is a University of Georgia graduate.  We enjoy traveling and going to football games in Athens as often as possible. Go DAWGS!  
     
    We will have a successful school year working together to ensure your child's success.  Kindergarten is the foundation to being a lifelong learner.  I can always be reached at school via email or a phone call. Please feel free to contact me anytime should any questions or concerns arise.  Thank you for your continued support in your child's educational path to learning.  It is going to be a fantastic year!
