Mrs. Valarie Berger

Welcome to my page!  I started at Leyden High School in 1985, and I love working at Leyden and with the Leyden students.  I currently teach the culinary classes, which include Culinary Basics, Pastry Chef, Cake Decorating, Cuisine Chef, Advanced Catering, and Advanced Catering Independent Study.  In the summers, you will find me in the drivers' education cars teaching 15 year olds how to be safe on our roads.
