Welcome to my page.  Very nice to meet you.  My name is Danielle Lopez-Vasquez, lovingly known to my students as just Lopez or Miss.  I have been with Mesa Public Schools for 20 years, teaching for 16 years.  I started as an instructional assistant, then a secretary, then a dispatcher and finally meeting my life-long goal of Special Education Teacher.  I began my career at Kino Junior High, after four years I moved to SHARP for five years and then came home to my alma mater, Westwood High School.  I am a Warrior and graduated in 1991.  I am a Sun Devil to finishing with 3 Master's Degrees;  Education Administration and Supervision,  Bilingual and Multicultural Education and Disability Law. I have always known I wanted to be a special education teacher.  This is my calling.  I love my students as if they were my own. I am a member of the Warrior community and a member of the Mesa Community, living in the Westwood area.  I am always available for parents and students alike.  Please do not hesitate to call me at 480-472-4623 or email me at  I will do my best to return emails and phone calls within 24 hours.

In addition to my Westwood Family I have a family at home.  My wonderful husband Phillip who has been nothing but supportive and he is also in charge of our nutrition.  He is a delightful cook.  He is my rock.  I also have three beautiful children, who happen to be Westwood alum, SJ, Daniela and Gabriela.  They are kind and decent people.  I am so proud of each one of them.  

I am here for you in any capacity.  Please feel free to reach out.  I look forward to working with you and your child.
