About The Teacher
Hello! My name is Denilya Barrett. I moved to Phoenix from Tucson with my daughter this summer and I am very excited to work with the wonderful staff and families at Monte Vista.
I have been teaching 4th and 5th grade in Tucson for the last 11 years. I was also a teaching assistant in a 4/5 Montessori classroom for two years before I got my teaching certification. I enjoy using technology and finding creative ideas to help keep my students active and interested in class. I remember very well how hard it can be to sit still at a desk for six hours! I have a bachelor's degree from the UofA and a Masters in Educational Technology from NAU.
I love animals and I currently have a dog, a rabbit, and two cats.
