Mrs. Leah Moran
I am so honored to be the Gifted Specialist for New River 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!
