Erin Deneke

I am excited to be at Jones Valley! At the end of the 2018 school year I will complete 8 1/2 years of teaching. I have worked in both high school and elementary school settings, teaching special and general education classes to students in third through sixth and ninth through twelfth grades. I am from Birmingham, Alabama and just moved to Huntsville this year. Previously I worked in the Jefferson County, Trussville City, and Vestavia Hills City School systems respectively. I have a passion for math and science! Currently I teach honors and regular science, honors reading, and honors English. I am also the JVE Greenpower team sponsor and a member of our school wide leadership team. In my free time, I enjoy gardening and being outside, visiting my mom in Birmingham, and going to concerts with my friends.
