Valerie Hall

SPED Director

Professor Hall is a former Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown who ran away from the circus and joined Utah! 

Originally from New Jersey,  Professor Hall moved to Utah after meeting her husband in the circus. In 2000, she started an entertainment company, Funny Girl Productions. Professor Hall is a true "Edutainer" (entertains while she educates).  

Professor Hall has always loved performing and learning and wanted to bring her passion of both to others. After performing hundreds of school assemblies and working as a substitute teacher for over 10 years, Professor Hall decided to become a full-time educator.

She now has a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education, a Master’s Degree in Secondary Mathematics Education (5-12) and is in the process of earning her Doctorate of Education in Leadership and Management (Anticipated December 2019)! Professor Hall is also a member of Kappa Delta Pi, the International Honor Society in Education and MENSA, the high IQ society.

When she is not working with her amazing students at school, Professor Hall enjoys hanging out with her three wonderful kids Julia, Hayley, and Hunter.  She is also a competitive bowler (217 average), loves to play softball and tennis, and likes to sing, dance and play both board and video games.
