Mrs. Valdez
Hi Everyone! My name is Cathy Valdez.  I currently live in Brady and have for the past 15 years.  I graduated from Stanton High School in Stanton, TX.  I received an Associate of Science degree from Howard Junior College and a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies from Angelo State University with a focus in elementary education and a specialization in special education.
  Some of the students on campus know me as Mrs. Cathy due to the fact that I have worked for Brady ISD for the last 15 of my 19 years of experience in education.  Nine of those years serving as a paraprofessional and six years as a classroom teacher.  Three of those years were spent teaching 1st grade and the other three teaching Early Childhood Special Education.  
   I am married to the love of my life, Daniel Valdez a lifelong resident of Brady. Between the two of us we have 7 children and 15 grandchildren.
  Children are my passion and teaching is what God has called me to do.  I feel blessed to be able to do what I love every single day.  Getting to see them work hard to meet their goals and reach important milestones is the ultimate reward of my job.  One thing you can be sure of is that I will LOVE your child. I just know that we are going to have a great year together.
  Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for your child specifically to make this year a productive and successful year for them.  As a parent and grandparent, I understand how important your child is to you.  I also know how very important YOU are to your child’s education.  We are in this together. So please feel free to contact me any time you have any questions or concerns. You can reach me by email me at cvaldez@bradyisd.org or by calling me at Brady Elementary @ 597-2590 x 3313 and leave a message.  I will be glad to get back with you at my earliest convenience.  My conference time is between 11:00 – 11:40 each day.  I look forward to meeting each of you, and hearing all about your child and building a positive relationship with you and him/her.
