Mr. Darren Deever

Hello, My name is Darren Deever and I will be your child's 2nd grade teacher.  This is my second year teaching at Shields Elementary and Mrs. Pandey, Mrs. Meriwether, Mrs. Simpson, and I are excited about a great year. I live in Red Oak with my wife, Eleesha. She and my three children, Brett, age 27, Jonathan, age 23, and Katie, age 20, are all Red Oak graduates. I graduated from Duncanville High School in 1987 and the University of North Texas in 2010 with a Bachelors in Community Service and Public Affairs. I am getting my alternative certification from Texas Teachers of Tomorrow. We have 4 dogs, Max, Bailey, Lucy, and Daisy. We love hiking, traveling, swimming, reading and watching movies. 

This is going to be a great year. We will journey through second grade learning new things, making new friends and have a great time doing it. I  am excited about getting to know all of our students this year and making Shields the best school and Red Hall the best hall.
