Meet Our Wonderful Staff 

Every member of the Douglas staff treats our students with care and respect. We motivate our kids as we guide them to academic and personal excellence. Douglas Elementary features some of the best teachers, staff, and volunteers in the state of Arizona! We truly have great people.

We know that communication among the school, home, and community benefits our children. By working together we improve the overall education and development of our kids. We invite you to get to know the Douglas teachers and support staff. We think they’re great - and you will too.
