Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Valenzuela

Hi My name is Yomira Valenzuela. I am a first year teacher, but I have been working at Knoles for the previous two years. I recently graduated from NAU with my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, and am hoping to continue my education with the next year or two. I am a huge advocate for teaching about having a growth mindset and really showing students that we are all human and make mistakes, and these uh-oh's are great learning experiences and we should all accept who we are and be proud of that.

I am so happy to be able to start this journey with you and your students! Feel free to email me anytime at and I would be glad to help. Even though I know things have been rough for everyone these past few months, I have a very good feeling about heading into the new school year and meeting you all.
