A Message from Mrs. Valentino:

I live in Simsbury with my husband, four kids, 1 dog and 1 cat. I love to read and enjoy watching sports- especially my kids’ baseball, softball and basketball games. I am a Patriots fan. I also play the piano and still take lessons. I taught grades 3-7 and was most recently a literacy specialist in Hartland. I am excited to partner with you. Please tell me what you love about Botelle, what might be improved, and anything you’d like me to know about you. I’m looking forward to a great year!
