Valerie Jopeck loves getting to work with each of our students at MPSA! Before joining Arlington Public Schools, she was with Fairfax County Public Schools as both a school librarian and also that district’s elementary education specialist for elementary libraries. Ms. Jopeck is a proponent of hands-on learning in the library and loves seeing students discover new passions in their learning and reading. Valerie holds a Masters in Information Sciences from the University of Tennessee, where she teaches their capstone graduate course on school library management. She is an avid reader (of course!), loves the beach, and is the proud mom of three sons in high school and college.
