Mr. Raymond Utter

    Hello, my name is Raymond Utter and I will be your student’s US/AZ or World History teacher. I am a former U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran serving from 1995-2004. I hold two bachelor’s degrees from Arizona State University; a BAE in Secondary Education and a BA in History. Similary, I am currently working on a master's degree in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University. I have been awarded the Deer Valley Unified School District 2014-2015 Rookie of the Year as well as ASU's Outstanding Mentor Teacher Award for the fall of 2016.

    I firmly believe that it is our job as parents and educators to equip our students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful throughout their lives and live to their full potential.  This includes becoming a productive member of society as well as an engaged citizen. I look forward to working with parents and students in order make this a very successful year here at Sandra Day O'Conner High School. GO EAGLES!
