Mrs. Deanna-Jane Sumner
I have been proud to be a Bear for the past 21 years and have enjoyed sharing my passion for the art of dance, including ballet, modern, jazz, and lyrical. My goal for my students is to learn about and apprecieate each of these styles and to learn about using dance as a form of creative expression for themselves.
I am also the Bruin Yearbook adviser and have held this position for the seven years. This is a hard job; however, working with my editors and staff to produce a better yearbook every year has been a rewarding challenge. This year's virtual start will bring us a newer challenge and a yearbook that will meet it.
Teacher Cadet is program that I teach as well. This is a course for high school students who are interested in a teaching career or any other career in which the student will be working with children, even parenting. The best part of this class is giving the students an opportunity to work in a teacher's class room and get first hand experience of what teachers do.
I am looking forward to meeting my students this year and seeing what they learn and how they grow as indiviuduals. #GoBears!
