Hello BICS families!


I am Ms. Valdez and I am very excited to be joining the team this year as the 5 /6 combo teacher! I come to you with a diverse background of teaching experiences that I hope to bring into the classroom. I graduated from SDSU in June 2016 with my Bachelors of Science in Child and Family Development and again this past December with my multiple subject credential. I strive to incorporate the concept of growth mindset as much as possible in the classroom and can’t wait to see what these fifth and sixth grades can do! 

When I am not in the classroom I enjoy going to the dog park with my two fur children, hanging out with family, listening to country music, and anything Disney! I look forward to meeting the students and family and getting this new year started!

7th/8th Grade

I am so thrilled to be a part of the BICS team this year! I have 5 years of teaching under my belt. I have been teaching middle school for the last 4 years and I’m excited to continue doing so. I received my general and special education degrees from Northern Arizona University in May of 2013. I completed my student teaching in the Lakeside School District and have been eager to return since then! I look forward to trying new things in class this year and incorporating a lot of technology and fun!


Outside of teaching, I love all things Disney, cooking, country music, and spending time with my family! Let’s have a great year!

This is my 4th year at Barona Indian Charter School.  Previously, I taught elementary school at San Diego Unified School District.  My favorite thing about BICS is that we are a small school.  I know every student and we feel like a family.  If you ever have any questions, or need my help please feel free to give me a call.
