Mrs. Cimino

My name is Valentina Cimino and I moved from Ecuador 16 years ago. Back in my country I earned an Engineering Degree in Business Administration with a Major in International Trading. A few years ago I went to go back to school to get my teaching certificate and Masters in Education with and Endorsement in Bilingual Education. By the end of the school year I will finish training as a reading interventionist. I taught Dual Language in the District for several years to then transition to ELL/Bilingual.

I am married to Tom Cimino and we have a wonderful 13 year old boy (Joe) whose dream is to become a professional football player and 2 beautiful fur babies Angel and Tebow. Our dream is to one day move to a bigger property to fill it with more puppies. Outside of school I love watching my son to play football, working out together, reading books, and spending time as a family.
