Mrs. Khalila M. Govan

Hello, my name is Khalila Govan, and I would like to welcome you to the Instrumental Music programs at Deer Valley High School. 


I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and recently moved to the Glendale/Phoenix area. This will be my 11th year teaching and my 1st year as a Deer Valley Skyhawk! 


While I attended the University of Arizona for my undergraduate degree, as a Trumpet player I performed in the U of A Marching and Pep Bands, Symphonic Band, Jazz Ensemble, and the Arizona Symphony Orchestra. Prior to moving from Tucson, I performed in several community groups: Arizona Symphonic Winds, Old Pueblo Brass Band, and the Santa Cruz Summer Winds. 


When not performing or teaching, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our pets, family, and friends. Some of my hobbies include exercising, video gaming (both console and PC), attending sporting events, and playing basketball. 


Sharing the love and music and performing is my passion. Music is a great way to build great future leaders and life long appreciators of the performing arts. I look forward to working with all students in the instrumental music program. Go Skyhawks!
