Ms. Tess Valente

I have been a Speech-Language Pathologist with District 89 since 2020, and I am looking forward to another exciting school year! I am passionate about working hard with students to help them meet their goals while also having fun. My motto is to "choose joy" every day in both the big and small things. I find so much joy in helping students grow! 


When I am not at school, I enjoy photography, yoga, and spending time with my family and friends.
