Valley School
Advisory Teachers and Support Staff


Each student at Valley School has an advisory teacher. The student and advisor meet weekly to set individual goals and monitor the progress each student is making toward meeting his/her academic, attendance, and behavior goals. The advisor and student build a relationship of trust and collaboration.   Together they celebrate the success when goals are met and then work together to problem solve any hurdles which may be preventing the student from reaching his/her goals. 

The advisors' names are listed below.  Please click on the name of your student's advisor to communicate with them through e-mail.  Since teachers spend their day working with students, e-mail will be the most effective and efficient means of communication. 

Dustin Giesenhagen : Science Teacher

Jennifer Shaver: Social Studies Teacher

Jim Smyth : Math Teacher

Brian Nash: Language Arts Teacher


Our support staff team is also a resource for our students and teachers.  Their assistance is invaluable and they are always there for our students.
