Kenneth Aldrich

Welcome to Mr. Aldrich's Class



Welcome to Stingray country.  I am happy to be your child's teacher and excited to be working at Vale M.S.  I am coming from Jordan M.S. where I taught for one year.  Prior to that I taught at Somerset Junior High and Southside M.S. This is the start of my 16th year in which I have taught both American History and Texas History.  

I am looking forward to this school year and know it will be a great year with students, faculty and parents working together to form a successful Stingray community.
