Mrs. Phetteplace

Hello, my name is Vicky Phetteplace and I have worked in Preschool for 10 years.  This will be my 15th year in the Deer Valley Unified School District.  I have 2 sons, both have attended and graduated from Deer Valley Schools.  So, needless to say, I'm very fond of the district.  I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and am currently enrolled to further my education.  I truly love working with young children and watching them solve problems, make friends and discover new things.  I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year!  If you ever have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at


Ms. Doreen

My name is Doreen Oraha, this is my 6th year with the Deer Valley District.  I worked with Community Ed B/A for 2 years and with Community Ed Preschool for 3 years.  I have my CDA in Early Childhood.  I love working with children because they are hands-on learners and in preschool they can learn through play.  Everyday is a new adventure for them.  I am so excited to be a part of it!
