Ms. Valerie McElroy
I have been an employee in the public school systems for 28 years, six as an instructional assistant and 22 as a classroom teacher. I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from San Diego State University. A few years later I received my teaching certificate from National University in San Diego.
After three years of teaching 3rd grade in San Diego, my family and I moved to Pensacola, Florida where I taught 3rd grade for seven years. In 2008 I moved to Florence, South Carolina. I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade at Greenwood Elementary School. I currently teach 4th grade ELA and social studies at Carver Elementary.
