PRINCIPAL ELEMENTARY
Desert Trails Elementary School

Dear Desert Trails School Community,

My name is Marta Maynard, and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Desert Trails. I am honored to have been selected to join the Desert Trails community, known for its dedication to excellence, and more importantly, to children. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for our students every day while providing them with meaningful learning experiences. 

I arrive at Desert Trails as a seasoned elementary teacher and building principal. I graduated from the University of Arizona and began my teaching career in Tucson, where I taught for three years. After having our son, my husband and I moved back to Phoenix, where I began my service in PVSchools. I taught for an additional nine years before taking on the role of instructional coach for two years and then moving into administration as a TOA/Assistant Principal at Wildfire Elementary. I was at Wildfire for two years and then earned my first principal position at Quail Run Elementary, where I served for nine years. In addition to my role as an educator, I am also a wife and mother. My son, Hunter, graduated from the University of Arizona in May with a degree in Economics with a Business Management minor. He is currently working in Tucson and moving back to Phoenix to start a new job in August.

Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, I also look forward to working with you to ensure students have a fun, safe, and memorable school experience.  I am very thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to your amazing community.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Sincerely,

Marta Maynard
