My name is Valerie Mangano and I will be your child’s first grade teacher. I have been teaching for 20 years. I am from Brooklyn, New York. My bachelor’s degree is from St. Francis College. I moved to Rockaway Beach 14 years ago. I have three beautiful children, Nicole, Gabrielle and Jeremy. Some of my favorite things to do is walk my cockapoo, Luna around our neighborhood and watch The Food Network.
