Positive Academic Behavior Support Aide
My name is Valerie Mason. This is my first year at Harpool and I’m excited to work with the students in the PABS class. I believe through a positive learning environment and support each student has the ability to be successful and lead a quality life.
Here is a little bit about me. I grew up in Southern California and graduated from Cal Poly University, Pomona with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications: Journalism. My husband, Marcus, and I have been married for 21 years and have two sons, 19 and 13.
For the vast majority of my career, I worked in news, cable TV and city government television while living in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Austin and Phoenix. I was involved in all aspects of video production but primarily as a producer/reporter/writer covering news and community events.
In addition, I have worked as a substitute teacher for Denton ISD for several years. I subbed for all grade levels and subjects including special education and inclusion.
I look forward to getting to know the students and help further their education. Please email or call with any questions.
