    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 23rd 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 newsletters,  Remind 101, email (vleonard@madison-schools.com) and on my Madison County Schools webpage.  Please be sure to join my Remind 101 group (text @2c429c to join) 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!
