Mrs. Marcia Karls
I am so excited about being here at Village Meadows and a part of the Viking Family. I have been with Deer Valley Unified School District for ten years educating students of all abilities and ages. My dedication is to help students find their abilities and thrive in their learning community. I am a graduate of Indiana University and Northern Arizona University with BA in General Education and Master's in Special Education/Support Services. When I am not at school I travel, cook/bake, and am involved in many organizations impacting our community. Traveling has allowed me to spend quality time with my family as we venture around the world visiting many countries and places. My cooking and baking has changed over the years discovering healthy and tasty foods that are more allergy friendly. My organizational involvements at state and national levels are ways for me to carry on with my dedication to all students. The students bring happiness, joy and purpose to my day. It is because of our students, families, and school community that I received DVEF Teacher of the Year - 2017. The community here at Village drives me to be the best I can be. I am looking forward to the growth and forward moving that I see in the Viking community and believe that the Viking Values are truly going to allow all Village Vikings to sail to success.
