Mrs. Suzanne Decker
This will be my 24nd year teaching elementary music and my fourth year in Apache Junction. Previously I spent 14 years teaching for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in Scottsdale, but have also taught in New Mexico and California. Each school year is another exciting adventure in making music with elementary students and watching them grow and develop as young musicians. I count myself blessed to share the subject I love with students every day!
In my spare time I enjoy hiking in the Superstitions with my black labrador JJ, or babysitting my grand-pup, Sandor. I have been married for 29 happy years to Don and have two grown kids, Dalton (age 25) and Danielle (age 23). As often as I can I head north to our cabin in Show Low, where I love walking and exploring in the pines.
