Mr. Jeff Fortney

Welcome! I am excited to be part of the Roadrunner family for the 2018-2019 school year.  I have been a special education teacher since 2004, teaching children from Kindergarten to 8th grade.  This is my 3rd year in Deer Valley Unified School District and my 1st at Mirage Elementary. I'll be teaching in the 4-6 grade Learning Center - reading, writing and math, and pushing into several classrooms to support students in the general education environment.

I have lived in Arizona since 1999 and love it.  I love the desert heat and all that it entails.  I love hiking, mountain biking, music (20,000+ songs on my iPod now).  My wife Mary and I have been married for 38 years. We have a wonderful son, Justin and daughter-in-law, Haley. We also have an amazing grandson, Jameson, who just turned 1 year old on July 21. 

Please feel free to contact me at with any questions or concern. I enjoy hearing from you.
