Miss Valerie Hershey

Hello! I was born in San Jose, California but raised Caldwell, Idaho. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Medicine in 1999 and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology in 2012. I also have a Master in Science Degree in S.T.E.M. education.  I have been blessed to have been able to travel around the world through the Boise State University Raptor Biology Program.  I have conducted birds of prey field surveys in Kenya and India as well as studied endemic species on the Seychelles Islands.  I was also a field assistant studying the nesting effects of buteo hawks around wind turbines.  Other exciting jobs I have had include being a Gymnastics coach and a Zookeeper. My hobbies include traveling, camping, hiking, surfing, bird watching, film making and reading.  I am thankful to be working for Middleton Academy and I enjoy taking part in the progress made by this school and its students.
