Mrs. Valarie Cleveland-Tyson
My name is Valarie Cleveland-Tyson, and this is my second year as a first grade teacher at E.P.Todd. Prior to coming to Todd, I taught third and fifth grades at Houston Elementary before coming to E.P. Todd. Before becoming an educator, I worked in the federal government, non-profit and corporate arenas. However, teaching has been the most fulling career I have ever had. I am a firm believer that education is the most important part of every person's life.
I was born in Spartanburg and attending schools in Spartanburg District Seven. I received my undergraduate degree in Mass Media Arts from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia. I later received my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Converse College, and recently received my Plus 30. I am certified in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education, and I have my Gifted and Talented endorsement. In 2014, I received the distinguished honor of being selected as Teacher of the Year for Houston Elementary School.
I am married and my husband and I have with two beautiful daughters. My hobbies include reading, dancing, smiling and shopping with my children.
As a lifelong learner, I am constantly taking classes and attending professional development opportunites to be the best educator I can be to ensure I am providing the best educational opportunity for your child.
