Lynne Valencia
English Teacher




I have been teaching in Denver Public Schools since 1998. I have taught at Beach Court Elementary and Garden Place Academy. I am longtime Denver resident and a native to Colorado. My husband, also a public educator, and I have graduated two children through Denver Public Schools. In my free time I love gardening, cooking, fishing and READING. I also enjoy traveling, this past summer my husband and I spent two weeks exploring Colombia. Teaching and learning are important to me because I have witnessed first-hand the power of education and its potential to become the greatest equalizer.
