Grandview Elementary School > Kindergarten

 Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hi, I'm Valerie French the kindergarten teacher at Grandview Elementary! I am originally from Dover, Kansas. But, I currently live in Manhattan with my husband Nick, our daughter Violet, our cat Lilly, and our dog Daisy. In my spare time, I enjoy sewing and watching reality TV. I also love swimming and the color purple.

I received my degree in elementary education in 2007 from Kansas State University. GO CATS! After I graduated, I began teaching here at Grandview. So, this will be my seventh year teaching Kindergarten. In December 2012, I also received my Master's Degree in Special Education from Fort Hays State University.   

 I absolutely LOVE teaching Kindergarten! You see so much growth throughout the year. Kindergarten is such a wonderful age to teach. They are like little sponges soaking everything up!

 If you have any questions or concerns I would be glad to help! You can reach me by phone at 717-4470 or by e-mail at
