Hello! My name is Dana Valenti. This is my 8th year teaching at St. Ann and my third year in 3rd grade. That's me (in the purple dress) with my 3 children and my parents. This is my 18th year teaching. Prior to teaching at St. Ann I taught 1st and 2nd grade, as well as Art. Additionally, I spent 2 years working with physically and language impaired children for Special School District. My teaching experience has been in both public and private schools. I am very excited to teach our Catholic values here at St. Ann. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1995 with Elementary Education and Learning Disabled certifications. I received my Master's Degree in Teaching from Maryville University in 1999.
I reside in Bel-Nor and have been a member of St. Ann Parish since 2002. I am so proud that all three of my kids are St. Ann gratuates.
