My name is Valerie Kurowski, and I am the speech-language pathologist (SLP) at Shepard Boulevard Elementary. I am so excited to be a Stallion and am looking forward to an amazing year!
This is my 19th year working as an SLP! Although this is only my fourth year working in Columbia Public schools, I have experience working in public schools in the Louisville, Kentucky area and in the Dallas, Texas area! I was born and raised in Oklahoma and graduated from Oklahoma State University. Oklahoma State is also where I met my husband, Mike, many years ago! Mike works in the athletic department at Mizzou so our family loves the Tigers! We have two sons ages 14 and 11 who keep our family very busy traveling to sports practices/games and other activities!
As a family, we enjoy playing basketball, baseball, and football in the yard, bike riding, watching just about any sport, playing board games, and attending Mizzou sporting events! We also enjoy playing with our dog, Teddy Lock and teaching him tricks!
