My name is Ms. Alice Derrah and I’m proud to be part of the Bellair community.  I look forward to an exciting year that is academically stimulating and promotes and strengthens critical thinking skills for all students.


Background Information:

·         Education:  University of Arizona, Tucson, Liberal Arts degree; Arizona State University, Tempe, Post-Bac in Elementary Education

·         Experience:  Teaching in Deer Valley for over 17 years!

·         Personal:  I was born in Tucson and raised in Sierra Vista (about 70 miles south of Tucson), and am a native Arizonan.  When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, cooking, camping, and listening to jazz…Ella Fitzgerald is one of my favorites!  I have 4 incredibly sweet kitties, Cosmos, Sorrento, Capri and Telco, and an energetic doggy named Gracie.  I adore all of them and love having them my life!
