Mrs. Neiman

Welcome, Inspiration Mountain Knights!

I'm so excited to be teaching Reading & Writing here at Inspiration Mountain!  It is my goal to explore new adventures in reading and writing, while setting goals based on students' strengths and weaknesses.     


This will be my 10th year of teaching in Deer Valley Unified School District.  I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor's in Science, with a Dual Emphasis in Special and Elementary Education.  I began my teaching journey at Park Meadows, where I taught K-6 specialized instruction for a few years, switched to third grade dual support educator, and had the opportunity to loop up into 4th grade with my students.  Fourth Grade is where I will stay!  I taught 4th grade again for another year at Terramar, teaching Reading, Writing, & Social Studies.  When the opportunity arose to work at Inspiration Mountain last year I couldn't have been more excited!  This is the area I have lived for over 20 years and I raised my own sons in this area!  

About Me

Michigan is where I was born and raised!  I moved to Arizona over 28 years ago.  I met my husband here and we have raised our three sons here in Deer Valley.  I'm proud to say that I have an N.A.U. Lumberjack and an A.S.U Sun Devil graduate in the family!  Family is extremely important to me.  In our free time we love to explore while mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and even taking camping adventures.
