About Mrs. Missie Valdiviez

Here is my school website: http://mvaldiviez.weebly.com/ About Madame Valdiviez I grew up in Kansas City, MO. My father worked for the airlines, and my family traveled abroad numerous times. This is where my love for foreign language began. I studied French in high school and decided to major in French in college. I wanted to become a teacher and loved French so much that I decided to become a French teacher. In 1982, I obtained a B.S.E. from Central Missouri State University. After graduation, I moved back to KC and got married. I substitute taught and was a preschool teacher for a while before taking time off to have a family. My husband, Rich, and I have three lovely daughters: Jessica, Megan, and Lindsay, (all three girls are married) and my oldest daughter and son-in-law have graced my husband and me with one granddaughter. While our daughters were growing up, I tutored reading and operated my own in-home preschool. In 1997, my family transferred to Jefferson City. I started my career in the capitol city as a substitute teacher, teaching at every grade level. I was hired as a full-time French teacher in 1999. I had the desire to further my studies in secondary education, so I attended Graduate School. I obtained my M.S.E. from William Woods University in May 2007. I taught French for 14 years in Jefferson City and moved to Southern Boone School District in the fall of 2013. I am an active person who enjoys traveling, reading, sewing, crocheting, taking pictures, and spending time with my family. My love to travel is still very apparent. Periodically, I travel abroad with students to Europe. (The next tour is scheduled in summer 2018. If interested, look for details on my blog page.) When I cannot take students to France physically, I bring France and her culture to them. My main goal is to teach students to learn and appreciate the French culture. I wish also for students to learn “The Language of Love!
