Ever since elementary school, Deanna has always known she wanted to become a teacher. It wasn't until middle school that she realized what kind of teacher she wanted to be. She was inspired by her radical math teachers in middle (who our other instructors Dylan and Christian had too!) who helped her realized her love of math. Those teachers had influenced her inside and outside of the classroom and hopes to influences others as much as they had to her!
