Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Denise Holmes and I am extremely excited to be the RTI-B Specialist at Sunrise this year. I graduated from NAU with a dual degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I was in the classroom for the next 6 years, then I was blessed to stay at home with my 4 children for the following 15 years. I have taught in Deer Valley for the past 11 years. Three of those years were at Legend Springs and 8 at Sierra Verde.
I have 4 amazing children. Clayton is 25 and is a manager for a tech company. Taylor is 23, and a resource teacher in the Washington Elementary School District. Hayden is 19 --a Sophomore at Grand Canyon University. Finally, David is 17 and is a Senior at Mountain Ridge.
