Mrs. McDermott

Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Joci McDermott and this is my 15th year teaching at West Wing and my 25th year teaching in Phoenix. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University. I completed my Master's Degree in Administration and Educational Leadership from NAU. In 2014, I was honored to be named one of Deer Valley's Teachers of the Year!  I am proud to be a part of the amazing Second Grade Teaching Team at West Wing! We work closely to ensure a positive educational experience for every second grader. We will work hard, make new friends, learn exciting new things, and have fun along the way! I am looking forward to meeting each of my new second graders! Welcome to West Wing!
