Today’s blog is super special because Valerie is a good friend of mine! Seth and I actually shot this session together and Valerie was such a champ at handling both of the cameras! Valerie and her husband are in a recently married Bible study with us at our church (Grace Bible). The group is called Foundations and it’s a great way for newly married couples to study God’s plan for marriage and make friends with others in the same life stage. Seth and I didn’t know too many other married couples before this group, and it was a great way to find married friends! We’ve been with the group for over a year and a half now and it’s so sad to be moving away soon, but it’s been fun to celebrate life events with our new friends – like Valerie’s graduation!
Valerie studied education and has a huge heart for teaching and for her students! I had no idea how much time and energy teachers put into their lessons and hearing Valerie talk about student teaching last semester really opened my eyes to how much our teachers do for us. She cares so much for her students and their well-being in and out of the classroom! I know she’s going to make a difference in her student’s lives and that they are lucky to have her. I’m so proud of her for graduating from A&M and for receiving a full time job offer as a teacher in BCS!!
