Valerie Hall

Dr. Hall was a university professor in Indiana for 18 years. During that time, she taught
undergraduate and graduate courses in reading, language arts, and children’s literature for
elementary preservice teachers. For each of those courses, she supervised a practicum in the
schools. She also taught an introduction to exceptional needs and content reading for
secondary preservice teachers. In addition to her teaching, she coordinated student teaching.

As a professor on tenure track, she presented at conferences and published in professional
journals until she became a full professor. During this time, she used her school breaks to work
with missionaries in schools in Haiti, Puerto Rico, Panama, Nicaragua, Mexico, Chile, and Peru.
Before she earned her doctorate and began her university teaching, she taught elementary and
worked with homeschooling families. After moving to Florida, she taught high school English at
Calvary Christian Academy for one year. Then she went with a group of teachers from CCA to
be the ESE Specialist at a startup charter school in Pompano Beach. The last three years she
was the Academic Dean at Trinity Christian Academy in Lake Worth, Florida.

She began working with Calvary Chapel University when she was teaching at CCA. She
worked on curriculum for three years before CCU moved its onsite location, and Dr. Hall moved
north of Ft. Lauderdale. She is excited to again be working with CCU in academics. It is
amazing how God has worked to develop CCU into the exciting and impactful university that it is
