Mrs. Denton

Welcome to English 2021-22

My name is Jenny Denton, and I am happy to be teaching at MVHS this year! This is my third year teaching and my first teaching English.  I grew up in southern Idaho--a land of sagebrush, constant wind, and farmland as far as the eye can see. I moved to Arizona in 1995, and I can't imagine living in the land of blowing snow ever again.  It sounds weird, but I love learning new things, researching new ideas, and synthesizing my thoughts through writing. I spent 25 years raising my seven children full time, taught US History for two years, and now I'm excited to expand my experience teaching high school English. GO TOROS!
