• Meet Mrs. Crooks

    Principal Crooks
    I am Deer Valley born and bred, attending Village Meadows, Deer Valley Middle and graduating from Barry Goldwater High School. My passion for kids and the art of teaching has grown the past 23 years I have been employed in DVUSD. Teaching Government, Law in Society, Modern American History and World history at Mountain Ridge and Boulder Creek High Schools, I translated my love of history and politics into meaningful lessons for kids. After spending a year as the Social Studies Curriculum Specialist, I transferred to Barry Goldwater High school serving that community for five years. From 2011-2013 I made the middle school plunge, serving as principal at Desert Sky Middle School. I returned to my high school roots in 2014 as the principal of Deer Valley High School. I found my home! DVHS is rich with strong, lasting traditions. It’s our role as administrators to continue to create positive experiences for our students to prepare them for their future. Please join us for all the events happening at DVHS! #TakeFlightDV
