Mrs. Bobbi Cerro
Greetings and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Let me introduce myself! My name is Bobbi Cerro, and I am the Dean of Students and Instructional Coach here at Sunrise. I am thrilled to be a member of this welcoming and caring community. Although this is only my fourth year at Sunrise, I am not new to the Deer Valley Unified School District. I taught both 3rd and 4th grade in the Boulder Creek Region and the Barry Goldwater Region, and was a member of the Teacher Advancement Program (TAP) Leadership Team, while the TAP grant was still in effect here at Deer Valley. Most recently, I was the Continuous Improvement Specialist at the District Office. My work included providing quarterly feedback and support to all campus and department administrators with regard to their Campus/Department Improvement Plans, leading the PreK-12 Classroom of Excellence Recognition Program, co-chairing the Classified Culture Course and the district's Continuous Improvement Support Team, and evaluating and providing professional development for the district's Academic Facilitators. All the while, I was being called to return to the campus. I belong with teachers and students. I am so grateful to be here at Sunrise, where I can support, coach, and collaborate!
Personally, I have much to share as well. I am a proud Arizona native, and absolutley love our exquisite desert home! I am married to my best friend from high school (go Saguaro High School Sabercats!), James, and together we have two exceptional children, Madison and Billy. I am a Sun Devil through and through, and come from a long line of ASU alum. Madison is soon to join the ranks. Billy will graduate from high school in 2019, and will no doubt shoulder up alongside Sparky after graduation. In our free time, we love to take road trips, and soak up as much as we possibly can around Arizona. The diverse landscapes, rich culture, and fascinating and ancient history does not leave us wanting. The road takes us outside of Arizona as well, and we try to see as much of this great nation as we can. Often the road takes us straight to Disneyland...my happy place!!!!
I'd love to share more and get to know you, so feel free to stop by! My door is always open. I look forward to a wonderful year of learning, growing, and laughter. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves, work with our amazing Sunrise Family, and further develop my Lion's Roar!
