"I have known Valencia Cross for approximately 15 years. I taught with her at Kleberg Elementary (Dallas ISD). Valencia was a compassionate, enthusiastic educator that taught her students so much more than academics.  Her behavior management and classroom skills were always admired by many other teachers at our school. She is a Christian that is definitely a "light for the LORD" not only in her professional life but also in her personal life as well. Valencia Cross would definitely be an asset to any school or district.  She is also extremely qualified to teach others in the professional development areas.  I would count it as a blessing to learn from such a valuable resource as Valencia Cross."

"Your passion to make a difference in the world is unbelievable. You put your heart and soul into your endeavors and surpass any personal goal you could have set. Watching you do what you love and watching you make a difference in the lives of others is an incredible experience. You have inspired me to be the best version of myself. I look up to you. I feel that more people should strive to have the strength and passion that you exemplify with assisting others. I may have been stubborn at points but when I really needed your help you were there, which shows strength in itself. I have never been more proud to know someone and to call someone my role model. You have taught me so many things and I want to thank you. Thank you for inspiring me in life. Thank you for making me want to be a better person."

Ms. Cross worked with me as an instructional coach and co-teacher not an evaluator. She was always willing to listen and help come up with a plan that worked for not just the students, but also the educator. She is a spiritual, intellectual and kindhearted person with a wealth of knowledge and love to give to others.

Ms. Cross was such a source of inspiration and guidance my first year teaching. As a bilingual kinder teacher, I wanted to balance setting boundaries and giving five-year-old students freedom. Talk about a challenge! Ms. Cross helped me think through strategic routines and procedures, and always in a way that maintained the joy I envisioned in my classroom.

"I have known Valencia Cross since the Fall of 2014.  We assumed the responsibilities as Campus Instructional Coaches, where she led as the Math Coach. She has spearheaded schoolwide initiatives to help pave the way for student and teacher academic success. She took me under her wings and trained me to work with adult learners and more intentionally with students from a coaching position. One of Valencia’s strengths is her ability to help teachers use data to drive instruction. After guiding teachers and students on how to get the best leverage out of their results, we were able to see major academic gains campus wide. If you are looking for someone that is skilled in the area of instructional coaching, passionate about motivating students, and will put every effort to ensure teachers and students are well equipped, Valencia Cross is the perfect person."
