Mrs. Diane Butler


Hello and Welcome to the OWL Room!

I have been an Early Childhood educator for 28 years.  For the last 12 years I have been the Owl Room teacher here at the Valley View Early Childhood Center.  During my time here I have taught in a variety of programs including: Blended, PEG, STLR and Cross Categorical which I am teaching again this year. Teaching preschoolers is so rewarding! They are always teaching me something new! It is my belief that ALL students are unique and have great potential to learn.  It is my job and privilege to ensure that each child feels cared for, respected and supported so that together we can discover their full potential in all areas of development. This is best accomplished through a close connection with families. The early years are so important in laying a firm foundation for life!  I am blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of your child's foundation for the future.
