Hello, my name is Madeline Maness. I have been teaching at CVE since 2016. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I enjoy watching movies, cleaning, playing with my dog Cheerio, and spending time with family and friends. I love to listen to music, no matter what genre it is. I have a passion for giving back to the community and helping those around me succeed and reach for their dreams! "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Hello, my name is Mrs. Buford, and I am the teacher in 4D. I started teaching in 2015. I absolutely love teaching at Center Valley Elementary. My husband Charley and I have a daughter named Nora who was born in October of 2016. I am a member of Victory Missionary Baptist Church where I serve as an Awana leader. It is my goal to help my students become the best leaders, thinkers, and students they can be. My students and I work together to be examples for the rest of the school because my students are officially the oldest in the building. I can't wait to have another great year full of fun and learning!
