Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Doran

Salutations!  I'm Trish Doran and I have been with Cave Creek Unified School District for 8 years.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida State University in International Affairs.  My certification for English Language Arts grades 6-12 was completed through Rio Salado College. Before teaching, I was a district manager and corporate trainer in the retail industry.  My stores were based all over the Southwest.  

I have 3 (older) Spanish Immersion Roadrunners who love DWES and a dog who loves treats and naps.  Desert Willow is a community filled with incredible staff, families, and opportunities.  I am thrilled to be here and know that together we move mountains and create curiosity.  Collaboration is how we craft meaningful, rigorous, and fascinating experiences for our students.  Join me in making this year the best one yet!

Sixth grade is an opportunity for students to become scholars, self-advocates, and leaders.  I'm looking forward to being part of the excitement with you!
