Welcome to 1st Grade!
My name is Vanessa Levy and I am excited to be your child’s 1st grade teacher! This is my third year teaching 1st grade at Valerius. I graduated from Drake University in 2016 with a master’s degree in teaching. I have endorsements in reading and special education.
I grew up and went to school in the Twin Cities. Prior to graduate school and moving to Des Moines, I lived in Minneapolis and went to college at the University of Minnesota. I received my bachelor degrees from the University of Minnesota in 2012.
When I am not at school, I love to coach gymnastics, watch sports, spend time outside, and catch up with friends and family. I love the Minnesota Gophers and Minnesota sports teams!
I will be updating this site throughout the school year so continue to stop by and check it out! Don’t forget to connect to our class dojo page as well! If you ever have a question or concern, feel free to contact me at the e-mail in the link above.
