District Teacher of the Year



Teacher of the Year



Vally High Instructor, Mrs. Linda McKnight, has been nominated as the Teacher of Year for the Delano Joint Union High School District.  

Mrs. McKnight began her career with the District in 1988.  She has taught, Business Educaiton classes, U.S. History, News Production, Personal Finance, Health, Entrepreneurship and other classes when needed.  She also serves as the Independent Studies Instructor for Valley and for over 15 years as the Workforce Investment Act Labor Market Instructor for the entire District.  

I view teaching at Valley as a "calling."  I realize many years ago that my students are diamonds in the rough that need a little polishing and a whole lot of encouragment to get them to shine!  That is what I have tried to do with all my students who walk through my classroom door.

Mrs. McKnight has been selected as Valley High's  Teacher of the Year as well as DJUHSD VIP Certificated Staff Member in 2015.
