I loathe the fact that I procrastinate in that class, but I really do try to make an effort.

Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? Math has never been my forte; I was initially intimidated and apprehensive going into Calculus as a junior, and my expectations for myself weren't high.

Ms. Vallesteros is committed to the success of her students by offering unconditional after-hours support and tutoring.

She is wise beyond her years, dedicated, and has an excellent grasp of what it takes to build confident students.

I can only wish we had more educators who possess the life experiences and commitment constantly displayed by Ms. Vallesteros

AP Calculus is a very hard subject to teach as well as learn but Ms. V makes it an easy task.
