Meet the Teachers & Staff

Highly-Qualified Faculty and Staff – Dedicated to Students

One of our goals here at Desert Mountain Elementary is to keep the lines of communication open between home and school. Working together with parents is a great service we can provide to our students. Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss any problems, questions, or concerns. You are welcome to send our teachers an email or leave a message for them with the front office. We will make sure our teachers get messages as soon as possible, and they will return your call at their first opportunity.
