Welcome to 5th Grade. I am Mrs. Valente and I am located in Room 8 of the 5th grade wing. Growing up in Lincoln Park, I had an amazing childhood. I went to Boonton High School and headed off to college at Montclair State University after graduation. There I studied Business: Marketing. After working in the business world for a few short years, I decided that teaching was the right job for me. So, I went back to school and earned my teaching certificate. I began teaching at Lincoln Park in 2007 and I have loved every minute of it.
Although I do not live in Lincoln Park anymore, I still reside in Morris County with my husband two sons, Trevor, who is 6 years old and little guy named, Palmer, who is almost 2 years old.
I am looking forward to working with you this year.
