Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Valerie Ourada
I have been teaching Kindergarten at Lake Spokane since 2014, and taught for 4 years before that in Spokane Public Schools. I am originally from the town of Maple Valley on the west side of Washington and taught 3rd and 4th grades there. My family moved to Nine Mile Falls in 2006 just before my son, Ryley, started kindergarten at Lake Spokane. Ryley is a senior this year, so we have a lot going on! I also have a daughter named Madison, who is a sophomore at Lakeside High School. My husband does construction and is an artist, too.
I went to college at the University of Washington and got my Masters in Teaching at City University. I love to read, hike, kayak and go to the theater with my husband.
