• Welcome to the Sierra Verde family.  I am excited that you will be part of my class this year.  We will learn so many neat things together.

    My name is Mrs. Cerjak.  This is my 23rd year teaching in the Deer Valley School District.  I have been married to my wonderful husband Bob (you may hear me call him Luck) for 32 years.  We have two children, a daughter, Courtney (a teacher herself here at SV) and a son, Adam and 2 grandchildren (Easton and Everly)  . We are ALL Lumberjacks!   My family loves to go camping in the pine trees and travel to the midwest for fun. We are CUBS and BLACKHAWK fans!  

    This summer, I traveled to Chicago and took a cruise to Alaska.  I had the opportunity to take a helicopter ride to a glacier and go on a dog sled adventure.  I am excited to hear about your summer adventures.

    Teaching is my passion.  As an educator it is my goal to instill a love of learning and help your child become an independent learner.  So much will happen this year.  It is important to remember that we all build on small successes.  Please celebrate your child's success, no matter how small they may seem.  This will keep your child enthusiastic about learning and proud of their work!

    I am very involved in activities that happen at Sierra Verde School.  I am Co-Director for the drama department.  The 6th through 8th graders put on an amazing performance every year! 

    I look forward to an exciting and fun filled year of learning with your child!
