Meet Mrs. Amara
Greetings Aspire Family,
It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Director for Online and Virtual Learning. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead such an innovative online school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.
I am excited to embark on my 18th year in education and begin my new journey as part of the Deer Valley Unified School District family. I am originally from Houston, Texas where I was a dedicated English Language Arts teacher for the Houston Independent School District for over a decade, transitioning into my second passion as counselor, and then into district administration with the Career and Technical Education division. In this capacity I served as director for CTE helping students to learn and obtain skills needed not only to be successful in a post-secondary option but for life outside of school. I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to DVUSD and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.
On a personal note, my husband and I are excited to have our two daughters begin their new educational experiences here at DVUSD. We love the outdoors and traveling when we can. We also have two amazing fur babies, Marley and Mango, which we take with us when and where ever we can.
Education, in my personal view, is a life-long process and I expect that I will continue to learn much about the exceptionality of the DVUSD this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my willingness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Meet Dr. Victor
Hello Aspire Community,
I am so excited to be part of this special learning community of innovative online learners as the Principal of Aspire K-6. The staff, students, parents, and greater Aspire community have shown their passion and commitment to supporting students. I am proud to join this team.
This will be my 25th year in education and I am as passionate about what I do now as the day I began! I spent many years as a classroom teacher. I moved into administration and became a Principal in Mesa before joining the Deer Valley Unified School District Family.
My family and Michigan State University are the loves near and dear to my heart beyond education. Jeff and I have twin boys who are grown, leaving us empty-nesters; except for our dog, Jazzy. My hobby is all things Michigan State University; especially sports!
As a staff, we will work to ensure that your child is able to achieve at the highest level. We will creating caring communities in our classrooms. We understand the importance of the social emotional well-being of our students and will work to support our students. I look forward to collaborating to help support your student reach his or her full potential this school year.
Together, this year at Aspire will be #Extraordinary!
