My name is Clarissa Mangrum and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Valley Springs Elementary. I graduated from Valley Springs High School in 2005. This place is 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. I am licensed to teach grades P-4 and started my career here at Valley Springs Elementary. In 2013, Bobby and I had our first child, Logan. He is 4-years-old and can’t wait to come to Kindergarten. In September, we welcomed our baby girl Lydia to the world. She just celebrated her first birthday and is such a blessing to our family. Children are my whole world, whether it be at home or with your little one!
