Miss Deana Fausnaugh

Welcome to the English Language classroom at Desert Sage!  My name is Deana Fausnaugh and I’m so thrilled to be one of our school's EL teachers! I graduated from Whitworth University with a B.A. in Music in 2006. I taught English in China for 5 years before returning to Idaho to earn my teaching certificate from Northwest Nazarene University. Some of my favorite activities include playing basketball and volleyball, gardening, reading, watching movies and spending time with friends! 

Our Desert Sage community is wonderfully diverse! Our families speak 20 different languages in their homes! I strive to work collaboratively with classroom teachers to improve language skills and cross-cultural understanding. My goal in the English language classroom is not only to help students improve their English abilities, but to help students grow to become confident, compassionate and determined lifelong learners!   

Parent communication is an important part of school!  Please feel free to contact me by phone or email with questions! An interpreter can be provided if requested.

This is my second year as an EL teacher at Desert Sage. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and fun! I’m so glad to be a part of the Desert Sage coyote pack! Let’s hear a coyote howl! Awooooooo!!
