Hello! I am Mrs. Ray, formerly known as Miss Dean. I have been teaching for five years, all of them at Whittier. I'm very proud to be a Whittier Wildcat! I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from BYU-Idaho back in Spring 2017. I am a Las Vegas native who thought the heat there wasn't enough so I moved down to the fiery Arizona desert. 

In the past I have taught 6th grade but this year, I am the writing teacher for yellow house and I absolutely love it. Writing and reading have always been my passion and I am grateful for the opportunity to cultivate a love for writing in your students. Feel free to contact me any time you need me. Email is more accessible for me but phone works as well! I'm looking forward to the rest of this school year with you!
