Mr. David Landis
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year @ Copper Creek Elementary. Thank you for choosing such a wonderful school for you and your family. We are glad you are here!
My name is David Landis. This will be my 15th year teaching special education. I will also be the (SES) Special Education Strategist here @ Copper Creek. I take pride in having open communication with my students and their parents. I believe in a "team" approach when working with families. Together, we can have a successful school year! My personal mission statement has always been, "you can't help everyone everywhere, but can help someone somewhere." I look forward to working with you and your family for years to come!
I have worked with Special Education students in grades 6th, 7th, 8th for eight years in the Kyrene School District.
I have worked with Special Education students in grades K-6 for five years in the Deer Valley Unified School District.
In 2013-2014, I received the "Above & Beyond", Teacher of Excellence award in the Kyrene School District.
In 2018-2019, I was nominated for a "Teacher of the Year" award by a parent in the Deer Valley Unified School District.
In 2018-2019, I accepted the (SES) Special Education Strategist position. This will be my 3rd year helping lead this wonderful special education department.
