Jennifer Valley

Hi! My name is Jennifer Valley and I’m an Instructional Designer. I have over five years of experience working in corporate training and one year working in K-12. I take professional development very seriously and take time out of each day to remain informed on the current topics and brush up on anything I feel is being under used. I enjoy professional development so much that I began writing my blog at the beginning of 2014 which is dedicated to sharing my knowledge, passion and experiences.
