Welcome 2021-2022 Lions!

    My name is Allison Tedford and I will be your child’s teacher for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. I am super excited to be a part of your child’s success and cannot wait to meet each and every one of you.  This is my first year at Sunrise. A little background information about me is that this is my 4th year teaching Special Education. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a bachelor’s degree in Special Education AND Elementary Education and my Master’s degree in Special Education from Grand Canyon University. I have taught Kindergarten- 6th grade in Special Education. I am so excited to spend the year with your child!

    I believe the connection between home and school is essential and your support is a large part of your child’s success in school and beyond. I can’t wait to get to know your family throughout the school year! This Year I will be using Class Dojo for communication with Families. There will be directions on how to sign up in there folder. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions, comments, or concerns.

    Throughout the school year, your child will grow socially, emotionally, and academically. I hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting time. I will strive to instill a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We will accomplish this goal with joint cooperation between the student, parent(s)/guardian(s), and teachers. 

    Please feel free to contact me through Class Dojo (A free app you can download to your phone, or access online at classdojo.com). I can be more successful in meeting the needs of your child when our lines of communication are open. Another point of contact would be through email at: allison.tedford@dvusd.org.


    I am looking forward to a great year!
