Ms. Grasso

I am a product of Deer Valley Unified School District. I graduated from Deer Valley High School in 2007 where I went on to Glendale Community College to earn an Associates of Arts in Elementary Education. From there, I went on to Arizona State University where I graduated December of 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with emphasis in English, and a Bachelor of Arts in English. I also went back to ASU to complete my Masters in Gifted Education and a second Masters in Educational Leadership. This is my 11th year teaching here at Stetson Hills! I am currently in my 7th year as Athletic Coordinator as well.

In my free time I am an avid reader.  I absolutely adore all literature, especially medieval and renaissance literature, but Shakespeare holds a special place in my heart. There is something that is truly just so beautiful about his written word.

As you can see from the picture, I also love to spend my time in Disneyland with my friends and family. Aside from Disneyland, I am also very involved with the Arizona Renaissance Festival that comes here every spring. My animals also mean the world to me! Currently I have four cats (Fiona, Bagheera, Indy, and Mickey), and ten ratties (Matthew, Dally Winston, Wasabi Goblin, Coconut, Bonzai, Marnie, Flotsam, Jetsam, Clover, and Jellybean). In addition, I foster ratties as well through Any Rat Rescue, and am actively involved with them. I currently have four fosters through them.



Some of my favorite things include:

Starbucks (iced caramel macchiatos!)

All animals (but I love opposums and cows)

Anything pumpkin flavored

Diet coke


The color pink

Fancy pens!

Twix and Hershey's Kisses


Target (I could literally live there!)

Old Navy

Amazon (I spend wayyyyyy too much there)
