Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Carey


My name is Debby Carey and I have been teaching for 19 years.  I have taught Kindergarten and Third grade and this will be my 12th year serving our wonderful Desert Mountain students as the Reading Specialist.  I am also privileged to work with adult learners at both Paradise Valley Community College and Rio Salado Community College working with students whom also need additional support with reading. I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication then continued my education obtaining my Teaching Certificate and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher in the area of literacy.  I hold endorsements in Reading, Early Childhood Education and Structured English Immersion.  Reading is obviously my passion and I absolutely LOVE coming to school every day!  

If I happen to be providing services for your child please be assured that I am doing everything in my power to help them be successful and attain the skills necessary to become an accomplished reader. Please make sure you are helping with this process by having your child read every day and reading with your child every day.   

If I do not provide services for your child but you have concerns about their reading success please do not hesitate in contacting me and I will be glad to give you some ideas and pointers that will help your child with their academic success.

Due to Covid19 we are all having to make adjustments and I appreciate your cooperation and partnership with this new way of teaching.
