Hello! My name is Valerie Stream! I live in New Lenox with my husband and our four children. My oldest is a Freshman at Lincoln-Way West and my other children are all in NLSD 122!
My favorite thing about teaching is watching these students have "A-HA" moments! I cannot wait to watch all of these children grow into a classroom family!
I started teaching at Tyler School in 1999. I taught 2nd grade for 7 years. I took some time off from teaching while my kids were young. During that time, I continued to work as a substitute teacher and volunteer in our district. This is my first year back and I am delighted to be your child's first grade teacher! I feel very blessed to be back at Tyler School where I started years ago.

I enjoy watching all of my children play the sports that they love! I also love boating, shopping, and reading!
My favorite book to read is The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. I love reading this book to my children the night before the first day of school.
