Hello and Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. My name is Mrs. Valdez and this is my 3rd year teaching at Rolling Hills Middle School and 6th year at CUSD. This school year I will be teaching 7th/8th grade English Language Development (ELD), 8th Grade English and 8th Grade Social Studies and I am very excited to start this school year. I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with my bachelors degree in Spanish Literature and I received my teaching credential from Cal State Teach. I am currently working on my Masters program at Cal State East Bay. I love learning and I love teaching even more. I am excited to share my passion for reading, writing and history with all my students. Let's make this an awesome year!
