Mrs. Christy Valentine

Welcome to Maplewood Middle School! I am the middle school counselor and I am so excited to be spending the year with you! I would like to tell you a little about myself. My family and I moved to Sulphur a few years ago from West Monroe, Louisiana due to my husband's job. This is my 8th year at Maplewood. I started on the elementary side and moved to the middle school in 2018. We are so excited to be a part of this community!

I have over 20 years experience as a teacher as well as a school counselor.  I have taught all grades from Pre-K to 4th and worked as a school counselor in North Louisiana. This is my fifth year as Maplewood's counselor and I'm so excited to be here!

I graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 1995 with a B.A. in Elementary Education and then in 1997 with a master's degree in Counseling. My family and I are BIG LA Tech fans!

I have three children.  Conner is married and is a new teacher at West Monroe High School. My daughter, Collyn, is a sophomore at LA Tech, and Carson is in the 9th grade at Sulphur High School.
