Mrs. Leah Moran

I am so honored to be the Gifted Specialist for Arrowhead Elementary! I started as a middle school science teacher and, over time, I transitioned into leading a gifted enrichment program for a local AZ school district. Before coming to Deer Valley, I lived in Flagstaff, AZ where I was a graduate student and obtained a Master of Education degree in Human Relations. I have years of experience working with the minds of gifted students and providing them with learning opportunities that are challenging, thought-provoking, and FUN!

Here's a little about me: I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH but moved to Phoenix in 2005. I went to ASU for my undergraduate and NAU for my graduate degree. My husband and I are the proud parents of two little dogs named Stewie and Trunks. In our free time, we love to travel, have Spa days, visit local restaurants, and go to the movies! I am looking forward to meeting all of you and having a memorable and inspiring school year!

Mr. Forest McCollum

Greetings and salutations! This is my third year as a Gifted Specialist within DVUSD, and this time around I have the opportunity to serve students in kindergarten through second grade at five amazing schools. To be able to work with bright children from wonderful families is an honor, and I'm lucky to belong to our ever-growing educational community. Thank you!

Outside of work, I'm reading, writing, exploring the outdoors, attempting to cook, or spending time with my family and friends.
