Ms. Gifford

This is my third year at Deer Valley High School and I love being a Skyhawk!

I have a B.S. in Finance with a minor in Economics. For many years I worked in the real estate industry, but I always wanted to teach. I returned to school and became a teacher in 2009. I've been teaching reading ever since. I am a K-12 Reading Specialist and hold a master's degree in curriculum and instruction. I have worked with students in every grade level from kindergarten through 12th grade. 

I am here to help, so please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. The best way to reach me is through email at
