Sunset Canyon Elementary School

I am very excited to join the amazing team at Sunset Canyon Elementary School.  I am Jerry Withers and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as the new principal.  I have been an educator for the past 20 years.  All of my time has been in the Paradise Valley School District.  I’ve taught at Aire Libre and Echo Mountain Primary.  During my time at these schools I taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 4th grade, and technology.   I also spent 2 years at Indian Bend Elementary School as their assistant principal.  For the past 7 years I was the principal at Campo Bello Elementary School.  Prior to becoming an educator I was in the technology industry as a computer programmer.

I grew up in Illinois and after graduating from Southern Illinois University I moved to Arizona.  I received my post baccalaureate in education from the University of Phoenix and my Masters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.  I am also a proud parent of 2 of my own children and 2 step children. The kids have blessed my wife and I with 3 granddaughters and 4 grandsons.

I’m very excited to join the Sunset Canyon team and I look forward to a wonderful year at Sunset Canyon.
