Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Brian DeGrandchamp

Hello my name is Brian DeGrandchamp. I am the 5th and 6th grade special education teacher. I'm excited to be joining the Gavilan Peak team this year after spending the last 3 years at other schools within the Deer Valley school district.  I have an undergraduate degree in education from The University of Arkansas.  Prior to becoming an elementary school teacher, I spent 14 years as a Recreation Therapist where I worked with both adults and children with special needs. In 2018, I went back to school become certified in special education. .My wife (Kathy) and I have lived in Anthem for more than 16 years and have two children who attend Gavilan Peak, a son in 8th grade and a daughter in 6th.  I'm glad to have the opportunity to be on the same campus as them, at least for this year. In my free time I enjoy reading and building things with my kids.  I look forward to partnering with each student to help them achieve to their full potential.
