Principal's Welcome

  • Welcome to Desert Shadows Elementary School! It is such an honor to be the principal of this wonderful school. At Desert Shadows, our vision is for students to obtain higher-level, innovative, and career ready skills through an integrated curricular approach. This is accomplished within a positive and safe school community.

    Desert Shadows is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) focused school, as well as an Arizona Gold Award winner for our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework that we provide. In partnership with the school community, we provide project-based STEAM lessons and activities across the curriculum. Teachers utilize exploration and discovery within a collaborative and cooperative learning environment while proactively teaching positive social behaviors. This makes for a great place for students to learn and grow!

     As principal, you have my commitment to a continuous focus on student achievement and a safe and positive learning environment for all children.
