Hello! I am Mrs. Race. I began teaching EL students in 2009. I spent four years teaching fourth grade and four years teaching fifth grade in the Washington Elementary School District from 2008-2016. I spent a short time working at ASU West as the Writing Center Coordinator. I then landed my job with DVUSD in 2018. This is my fourth year as a Teacher EL Specialist. I work with both teachers and students to provide targeted and integrated instruction.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 2008 from the University of Arizona. I then received my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership in 2011 from Northern Arizona University. I aspire one day to go into administration; however, curently I love my job working with students.
I have been married to my husband Rob for 10 years. We have two shcool - aged kids, a first grader and kindergartner. I enjoy playing softball on the weekends and hanging out with my family. We also have two Bernedoodles, Poppy and Perdita, and a desert tortoise named Yoshi.
