Hi, my name is Valerie Dahlquist.
I will be teaching Title 1 and K-4th Computers! This will be my 9th year at Gettysburg Elementary, 4th as Special Education Aide, 5th as Title 1 Teacher and 3rd in Elementary Computer. Iím very much looking forward to a great school year!
My husband Ron and I have one son, Rick, who is a sophomore. We live on a farm north of Lebanon.
HS diploma from Chester Area High School; Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Dakota State University.
5 years first/second grade teacher at Agar Elementary, 2 years Special Education Aid at Agar High School, filled in for 1 year of leave for first grade teacher at Bowdle Elementary School.
Various long term substitute teaching positions for Gettysburg, Hoven, and Bowdle Districts, covering positions during maternity and illness leave.
My main goal is to aid my students in learning the skills they are struggling with in reading and math in their regular classroom. Students come in small groups making good one on one time.
Kindergarten and First Grade:
Acquainting my students with the use of the computer and mouse. Practicing basic skills using computer sites and programs.
2nd Grade through 4th Grade:
Our main focus will be keyboarding, as well as practicing language arts and math skills.
To provide a caring, consistent and positive learning environment for my students.
