Teacher Valerie - Jellyfish Room

My name is Valerie Sepulveda. This is my first year working at Oasis Charter Public School and my fifth year in education. I moved to Monterey County this past summer from Phoenix, AZ. While living in Arizona, I received my B.A. from Arizona State University in Secondary Education. I taught 8th grade science for four years in South Phoenix. I am looking forward to my first year at Oasis and getting the opportunity to work with all the wonderful kids. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing video games, and cooking.
