My name is Valerie Price and I am the Canyon Pointe librarian. Before coming to CPES, I was a librarian at Beneke Elementary in Spring ISD for 7 years. I have also taught 3rd and 1st grade and been a reading specialist in both Klein ISD and Cy-fair ISD. I love Tomball and am so happy to be a part of this wonderful school district and Canyon Pointe.
I attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (GO VOLS) for my BS in Elementary Education and University of Houston (Go COOGS) for my Masters in Reading. Several years ago, my husband, son and I got a temporary transfer to Brisbane, Australia. While there, I decided to build upon my Master's in Reading and get my certification to be a librarian through an online courses at the University of North Texas. A librarian in the state of Texas is required to have 2+ years of teaching, a master's degree and pass a specialized test for certification. My sister has been an elementary librarian for 20+ years and I love what she has done in the library and wanted to share my love of children's books with the students. I love reading, being a librarian and working with children. Thank you for sharing your children with me.
