My name is Wendy Gazo and I am a proud parent and Teacher at Desert Willow Elementary. I am ecstatic to teach music at DWES and look forward to a fun and exciting school year! I began teaching music in 2001 in Dublin, CA. A couple of years later I moved back to AZ, where I was born and raised, and taught music at LMES for five years. I took a break for ten years to raise my three rambunctious boys and am so thrilled to come back to teaching at their elementary school!
My love for music stems back to my childhood where I loved participating in choir, Mexican folk dance and learning to play piano. I earned a music scholarship to Northern Arizona University and continued choir through college. After changing my major I came back to teaching to pursue my love of music and teaching children. When I'm not in the classroom, you can usually find me on the soccer, baseball, or football field... or maybe attending a concert or musical with my husband!
I look forward to a fantastic school year making music and friendships!
