Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ellen Valls

 I am a special education paraprofessional in the Life Skills class at Rehobeth Middle School. I have been at this school since March of 2012.

I began my career with Houston County Schools as a bus driver and substitute at Houston County High School in Columbia in October of 1998.

In August of 2008 I transfered to Cottonwood High School as a Special Education Paraprofessional and knew this was where I belonged.

Special needs children are my heart and I have had the privilege to teach and care for some exceptional children. 

I completed high school at Houston County High School in 1974 and attended Wallace Community College. I have been married to my husband, Steve, for 14 years. 

We share four sons and their spouses along with seven grandchildren. In my off time, we like to travel, spend time with family and friends and do a little crafting.
