Ms. Valle is excited to join the Equitas Academy team as an Extended Learning Team Leader at Equitas Academy 4 and hopes to share her passion for art and culture. Last year, Ms. Valle served as an AmeriCorps City Year member at an elementary school in Watts, Los Angeles where she learned more about social justice and education. Her passion for education began in 2015, when she participated in the Teaching Assistant Program in France as an English Language Assistant. She found joy in helping students improve their English and providing them a unique perspective on American culture. She graduated from California State University, Northridge and received a Bachelors degree in Art and French. During her time at CSUN, she studied at Université Paris- Vincennes- Saint-Denis in Paris, France. She hopes to pursue a Masters in Teaching and continue to inspire students to achieve their full academic potential.
