Hello my name is Valerie Bastone and I am so excited to be joining the Beacon Park community! While I may be new to Beacon Park I am definitely NOT new to teaching. This will be my 11th year teaching elementary school! I received my bachelors degree from UC Riverside and my multiple subject teaching credential and masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Cal State LA.
I am very passionate about education and absolutely love teaching 3rd grade. I enjoy making learning challenging, fun and engaging for all of my students.
A little bit about me: Above you will see a picture of my husband and my fur-child Carter. We love to travel, go to the beach, and be outdoors. My other passion besides teaching is yoga! I love yoga because of how it makes me feel physically and mentally. I am also a big hockey fan! Go Kings!
I look forward to getting to know all of my students and families!
