Mrs. Moody

Dear Students and Parents,

As we embark on this exciting journey of learning and growth, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and share a little about who I am.

My name is Mrs. Carolyn Moody, and I am thrilled to begin my 10th year as an educator. It brings me immense joy to be starting my second year back at Desert Sky Middle School after taking a 9-year break to raise my three wonderful children.

As a mother, I understand the profound impact that education has on shaping young minds, and I am deeply committed to fostering a love for learning in each and every one of my students. I am proud to say that my oldest child is now a sophomore at SDOHS, my daughter is taking her first steps into the world of middle school as a 6th grader at Stetson Hills, and my youngest son is embarking on his educational journey in first grade at Stetson Hills as well.

Growing up in Phoenix, AZ, and attending schools within the Deer Valley Unified School District, I share a special bond with our school community. I fondly remember my time as a student at Sunrise Elementary, Desert Sky Middle School, and Deer Valley High School, which has provided me with invaluable insights into the experiences and perspectives of my students.

Teaching has always been my calling, and I find tremendous fulfillment in guiding young minds toward success and self-discovery. I am passionate about nurturing a positive and supportive learning environment where every student feels valued, encouraged, and empowered to reach their full potential.

Beyond the classroom, my heart is dedicated to my beautiful family. When I am not teaching, you can often find me spending quality time with my three amazing children and my two furry companions, my beloved dogs. Family time is precious, and I cherish every moment we share together.

My love for adventure and exploration has also led me to develop a deep appreciation for travel. I adore the feeling of stepping into new places, and the beach, in particular, holds a special place in my heart. As a lover of nature, my favorite animal is the majestic manatee. One day, I hope to fulfill a dream and journey to Crystal River, FL, to witness these gentle creatures in their natural habitat.

As we embark on this new school year, I am filled with excitement and anticipation. I cannot wait to get to know each and every one of you, and I am committed to supporting you in your academic pursuits and personal growth.

Remember, this classroom is not just a place of learning; it is a community where we learn from and support each other. Together, we will create a memorable and rewarding educational experience.

I look forward to a wonderful year of learning, laughter, and growth with all of you.

Warmest regards,

Mrs. Carolyn Moody
