WOW, what an incredible day it is! It is great to be a part of Williams Memorial Elementary School family. My name is Valerie Jamison. I am married and have three amazing sons. I am a graduate of South Carolina State University with a Bachelor's and Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education. Throughout my educational experience at the collegiate level, I have had many opportunities to work with young children. My role as a highly qualified educator officially began in 2000. I have 20 years of experience in education. These opportunities have allowed me to shape and influence the minds of young children using several research-based techniques and strategies. My ultimate goal is to aid and support the development of all children so they are able to become successful learners in and beyond the classroom to positively impact the world!
