Master of Arts in Elementary Education

Mrs. Valorie Trombley

My name is Valorie Trombley and this is my 11th year teaching First Grade, but my 12th year at Riverwood Elementary! I graduated from UNC with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2008. I later decided that my true passion was to be a teacher. I went back to Graduate School at NC State University and obtained a Master of Arts in Teaching. I am so thankful that I had this opportunity to go back to school and pursue a very rewarding career. I truly love my job and enjoy coming to work each day! My husband and I are very blessed to have 3 beautiful children! Abby is 10 years old (in 5th Grade at RES), Matthew is 7 years old (in 2nd Grade at RES), and Ashlyn is 4 (in PreK at RES). I am looking forward to a wonderful year in 1st Grade!

  • Welcome to 1st Grade! I am so excited to meet all of you at Orientation on August 19th! Feel free to bring your school supplies with you to Orientation to help us make the first day easier. Find our class Supply List here:
