My name is Clarissa Mangrum and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Valley Springs Elementary. This will be my 9th year teaching; all of which has been here at Valley Springs. I also graduated high school at Valley Springs in 2005. This place is truely close to my heart! I have been married since 2008 to a great guy named Bobby Mangrum. He and his daughter, Lilly, made my life feel complete. A few years later, in 2011, I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education with a license to teach grades P-4. A few years later, I took additional classes and gained my license in Special Educaiton for grades P-4. In February 2013, Bobby and I had our first child, Logan. He is in Mrs. Roberts’ 1st grade class. In September 2016, we welcomed our baby girl Lydia to the world. She is about to celebrate her 3rd birthday and keeps us on our toes! Children are such a blessing and I would like to thank you for sharing your baby with me. We are going to have a great time learning this year!
