Mrs. April Dean

   My name is April Dean, and I am thrilled to be teaching 4th grade this year.  I have been teaching since 2005, and this is my first year to teach at East Elementary School, where I was a student myself many years ago.
   I am married to Brett Dean and we have two precious boys, Graham (7) and Davis (2).  I love traveling, running, and being outdoors with my family.
   This year in our cactus-themed classroom, our class motto is "We ROOT for each other" because I believe we all do our best when we feel supported and encouraged by others.  When we're all on the same team, everyone can succeed and reach his or her full potential.
