    Dear Parents,


    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am Mrs. Valarie Leonard, your child's Kindergarten teacher.  I'm beginning my 19th year of teaching. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Alabama A&M University and my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Belhaven University.  I am thrilled to work with you and your precious child.  We have a very exciting year in store for us.  Your child will learn many wonderful things!  

    I'm a proud mother of two boys.  They bring my husband and I so much joy!  I know you love your children just as much as I love mine.  I will treat your child as if he/she were my own.  Please know I'm truly passionate about children and will be giving them my best.  I am dedicated to serving my students while supplying each student with the necessary tools they'll need to succeed.

    Thank you for trusting your child's learning experience with me.  I would like to partner with you to insure your child's success.  I will be communicating with you through our monthly newsletters, homework folders, Remind 101, email (vleonard@madison-schools.com) and on my Madison County Schools webpage.  Please be sure to join my Remind 101 group for all updates and reminders.  You will also be able to respond and or text me with questions.  I will respond at my earliest convenience. Let's make this an awesome year of learning!
