• Hi!  My name is Valerie Favrow.  I am a 2nd grade teacher.  I am new to Hillcrest as well as being new to the state of Washington.  I moved here from California this summer.  I have 21 years of teaching experience - 17 years teaching 2nd grade, 3 years teaching 5th grade, and one year teaching a 5/6 combination class.  I am excited to be here at Hillcrest!  You can contact me at valerie_favrow@lkstevens.wednet.edu.
