Meet the Principal

a message from our principal

Desert Mountain Elementary Families,

I am honored to serve Desert Mountain Elementary, the best school in the state! Our teachers and staff are dedicated to making learning a fun and enjoyable experience.

I would like to invite you to contact me any time. My direct line is (480) 987.5901, or you can reach me by email. I have an open door policy, and I will always make time to talk to you. I am always here for you and your children.

Both of my daughters attended Desert Mountain Elementary. I mention this because before I was chosen to serve as principal I chose Desert Mountain Elementary for my daughters. I truly believe that Desert Mountain Elementary is the best school in the state!

Our goal for each and every student is to have fun and enjoy learning!

Thank you again for allowing me to serve you and your family!
