Hello! My name is Imelda Valencia-Gutierrez
I am originally from Corpus Christi, Tx and love living in Houston! I come from a long line of educators and consider myself an eternal student due to my love of learning. I am passionate about learning and do my best to share my passion with my students. I received my B.A. in Anthropology and B.F.A. in Art with a minor in Art History from the University of Texas in San Antonio. I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in Art Education from the University of Houston. In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband and three pets, explore different cuisines, and love to jog at the park! Most weekends if I am not working on my own artwork I am usually burning the dance floor at various salsa dancing events in the Houston area!
This is my 7th year at Quail Valley Middle school and I am teaching Art II, and III. You will probably see my student's artwork on the walls of QVMS but also representing the school in various art competitions. I look forward to another wonderful year at QVMS!
