Mr. Valerio

Hello there, my name is Ryan Valerio and I teach Kindergarten at James W. Smith Elementary. I live in Winterville with my beautiful wife and our two adorable daughters Abigail and Natalie. I am super excited that this will be my 7th year teaching at JWS. I grew up in Vanceboro NC attending West Craven Middle and High school. I received my Education Degree at East Carolina University and begin teaching 5th grade math and science in Pitt county in 2011. I taught 5th and 2nd grade in Pitt county before finding my way back home in 2013. There is a lot of fun and excitement that happens in my classroom but also a lot of learning. I believe that all students can learn-  just in different ways and on different days!
