My name is Deidre Garber and this is my second year teaching. I graduated from SUNY Cortland in New York with my degree in Recreation & Leisure Studies and worked in the Recreation field for 10 years. In 2010 I started long term substitute teaching for FUSD and fell in love with being in the classroom. Last year I decided that I wanted to become a full time teacher, so I enrolled in a program to complete my teaching certificate with SEI Endorsement.
I grew up in Kearny, Az and attended Ray Schools from k-12. I started my college career at Central Arizona College in Aravaipa and would eventually transfer to Mesa Community College. When I found my calling as an educator I decided to go to Northern Arizona University to earn my bachelors degree. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in the Fall of 2011. I was fortunate to be able to work as a sub through the Spring of 2012 in order to practice what I had learned in college before getting my own classroom. I began my teaching career at Circle Cross Ranch in the Fall of 2012 and look forward to staying for a long time. firstname.lastname@example.org
