Meet the Teacher


Welcome, English Language Learners:

My name is Marianne Durell and I teach ELD at Barry Goldwater High School. I am from Central New York and have taught English both there and in New Hampshire before teaching in the beautiful state of Arizona. Before teaching in Deer Valley, I taught ESL to adults at a small school in Glendale. This is my 8th year in the Deer Valley School Dictrict and my 5th year teaching English Language Learners. I have a daughter who is a sophomore at Grand Canyon University and a 11 year-old who will be a 6th grader at Sierra Verde Elementary, another DVUSD school. 

We are a family of runners. My husband and eldest daughter, who runs for GCU, have been running and competing for many years. I ran my first marathon in February and although difficult, it was amazing. I ran with people from all over the world and we had a great time talking about our different experiences and cultures. In addition to running, I love to read, hike, kayak and travel. 

I can't wait to meet all of you.
