About Mrs. Deer
    Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome to Aprende! I am the 6th grade Jaguar Academy Humanities teacher. The 2019-20 school year marks my 21st year working with 6th grade students at Aprende and my 23rd year teaching. 
    I am orginally from Carlyle, Illinois-a small town just east of St. Louis, MO. My husband and I moved to Arizona in 1998 because we were tired of the Midwest winters and wanted a change. We have two children named Payton, a senior at Corona del Sol High School, and Jackson, a freshman at Corona de Sol High School. Both of my children are Aprende Middle School alumni.
    In my free time I love to shop at Target, read, travel, watch movies, watch my kids play sports, and spend time with my family. I also love to organize closets, drawers, rooms, you name it!
    Dark chocolate and coffee are my two favorite food groups! I am a self-proclaimed Dutch Bros addict! 
    I am extremely excited about this school year. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
    Mrs. Deer
