Mr. Kahn: Special Education

Welcome back to an awesome new school year! I’m David Kahn and I will be co-teaching with the 4th and 5th grade teachers as well as working in small groups with our students with special needs. This is my second year at Skyline Ranch and my 41st year overall. So far, I’ve been privileged to work with preschool through 8th grade students as both a classroom teacher and a special education resource teacher. I graduated from the University of Arizona and am certified in Elementary K-8 as well as K-12 Special Education. My wife, Joyce, a recently retired teacher, and I have 5 wonderful grandchildren that we love to spoil. We also have two delightful daughters and sons-in-law.

Ms. Frey: Special Education

My name is Marcy Frey, and I am the special education teacher for kindergarten-third grade this year at Skyline Ranch K-8.  I have previously worked as a SPED paraprofessional, and this will be my second year teaching.  I graduated from Weber State University with a bachelor of science degree and I'm currently taking classes at GCU toward my master degree in special education.  I'm looking forward to another great year as a Bulldog!

Mr. Bermier: Special Education

This will be my sixteenth year teaching, the previous two years I co-taught at the junior high school at Eduprize Schools in Queen Creek and before that I taught in the Pathways Program for the middle school for eight years at Anthem K-8 in Florence. I have two Masters Degrees from the University of Phoenix, one for Elementary Education and one for Cross Categorical Special Education. I also have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration. I moved from the Chicago area many years ago and me and my son have lived in San Tan Valley for over eleven years. He was in the very first kindergarten class here at Skyline Ranch in 2007 and he is now a junior at Poston Butte High School. We both enjoy the varied outdoor activities available in Arizona and we spend a lot of time up north in the White Mountains whenever we get the time or out in the desert four wheeling in our cooler months.
