Rebecca Derr
Title I School Improvement Specialist


It is my honor to serve the Emerson community as a Title One School Improvement Specialist.  I look forward to working closely with students, staff, and parents to ensure academic success.  

I am a Mesa Public Schools graduate, having attended Crismon, Frost, Rhodes and Dobson.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Arizona State University.  This will be my sixteenth year working with the wonderful students in Mesa.  I taught at Washington Elementary for the first ten years. While at Washington, I taught first grade for five years, second grade for one year, and third grade for four years.  Following my time at Washington, I taught for two years at Johnson.  I taught both kindergarten and first grade during my time at Johnson.

In my spare time I love to play piano, read, scrapbook, cook, and spend time with my husband, sons, family, and friends.
