Valerie Button

Lead Teacher

Alice Shafer 1

I love working with young children and have been teaching for over 27 years. One of the reasons I love teaching Pre-K is that I love to see how much children grow and learn at this age. I love to use puppets props and hands-on experiences to make learning come alive for children. In our class we love to learn together reading great books being creative studying interesting things and developing friendships.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Elmira College and I did my graduate work in Reading Specialist at Gannon University. I also teach Pre-K lessons on WQLN Homeroom.
I love spending time with my family. I am married to Keith Button and have two almost grown sons, Nate who is in college and Daniel who goes to CASH.
