Valerie Camargo

Ms. Camargo was born in San Antonio, Texas and graduated from Sidney Lanier High School.   She attended UTSA and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English and a certification to teach English at the 8-12th grade level with an ESL supplemental certification and now is certified to teach 4-8 English.  

She has taught English I and II for five years and worked as an ESL coordinator and one year as a 7th grade teacher. This past year, she graduated with her Masters Degree in Literacy Education and interned as a Reading Specialist.  

 Her motivation for wanting to teach stemmed from her love of the subject and her desire as a young girl to teach her grandparents to read, write, and speak English.  She witnessed first hand the difficulty inherent in illiteracy and as a result her goal as a teacher is to continue improving, learning, and motivating students to obtain empowerment through literacy.
