Ms. Lydia S. Valenzuela

Greetings Parents!

I would like to take the time to introduce myself and say that I am very happy and excited to be returning to the teaching team here at Rhodes Middle School!  My name is Ms. Lydia Valenzuela and I will be your son’s/daughter’s 8th grade Science teacher. 

I am a graduate from Texas A&M International University having earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Science, with a major in Composite Science Education specializing in 4th through 8th grades.  I hold a Texas Educator Certificate and am fully certified to teach Science.  I have been teaching Science for twelve wonderful years and am looking forward to inspiring and sparking an interest in your children in the amazing area of Science; furthermore, I will also encourage them to take ownership of their education, and become successful in their academics. 

You will find my email address on this page and are welcome to email me at any time.  This is the best way to reach me because I check my email on a daily basis.  I will reply during my conference time or after school hours.

I have set high expectations for all my students and expect them to be responsible for their own work and behaviors.  The goal for each student is to strengthen their foundation in Science and prepare them for their 8th grade Science STAAR exam.   I hope to be able to establish a strong communication line with all students and parents so that together we can provide support and motivation towards a successful academic school year.  

Thank you for time and please do not hesitate to reach me at any point.
