Mrs. Killman

My name is Jeneil Killman and I will be your child’s third Grade teacher next year.  I am so excited to have the opportunity to to be a part of Las Brisas and have the opportunity to teach your child.  I have been in the district for 19 years, and I am happy to be a part of the DVUSD family. 

I am in my 25th year of teaching, and have taught grades 1 through 8 in both general and special education.  I received my undergraduate teaching degree in Elementary Education and Special Education in 1996 from Northern Arizona University.  In 2003, I completed my Masters Degree in Teaching from Grand Canyon University, and I am Gifted Endorsed.  In 2018 I recieved the honor of becoming A DVEF Teacher of the Year.  Teaching, learning, and working with children is something I love to do.

I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years.  My husband Mr. Killman works for the district and is the Deer Valley Education Association President.  I have a 19 year old son who attends Arizona Christian University and plays basketball and volleyball. During my spare time I love spending time with my family, friends, watching the Arizona Cardinals play football, going to Disneyland, watching my son play basketball and volleyball, going to Starbucks for a Caramel Frappuccino or Peach White Tea, shopping, and planning for school. 

Teaching is a job I take very seriously.  As a teacher my mission is to prepare and educate the students of today to be engaged and productive citizens of tomorrow.  I want to provide a safe, fun, and enjoyable environment where all children can learn by utilizing a variety of techniques and strategies.  I want students to believe in themselves and their abilities by giving them the tools for lifelong learning that they need for success and survival.  I see parents as a vital part of the education team.  I see myself as a positive role model, information facilitator, and guidance specialist, whose expectations are high.  We are a team in your child’s education.  So please do not ever hesitate to reach out to me for any reason.
