Hello, my name is Thelma Valenzuela. I am super excited to be part of this wonderful team. I was born in a small village in Mexico and relocated to a small town in Arizona at the age of 11. I am a DACA Dreamer and a strong believer of the “si se puede” motto. I have worked in many fields throughout my career history but got engaged in the education field while taking a break to get my only child ready for Kindergarten. All I can say is that I am thankful for giving myself the opportunity at that time. It opened up a whole new setting for me. I look forward to building long lasting relationships with Sun Valley’s parents, students, and community.
