Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, My name is Deann Best and I am orginally from Utah. We moved to Arizona 21 years ago and love it! I have been teaching elementary science for three years and taught 4th grade for 16 years. I have a BA in Elementary Education from UofA and a MA from NAU. I was selected by my professors to be the Top Elementary graduate in 2005 from the University of Arizona South. My husband Tim and I have 3 children who are all married. We moved to Gold Canyon this year to be closer to our grandchildren. We love to travel, ski, hike, bike, music and spending time with family. I had wonderful elementary teachers and I enjoy learning right along with my students. I feel it a priviledge to teach children and be a part of the great staff here at Peralta Trail Elementary!
