Mrs. Tori McCoy
My name is Tori McCoy and this is my 20th year of teaching. This is my 2nd year at Deerfield, and I have previously taught in Arizona and Montana. My undergraduate degree is in Accounting from the University of Arizona. I did my Post bac elementary teaching certification through Ottawa University in Phoenix, AZ. I have My Masters in Special Education from Northern Arizona University. I also have my endorsement in teaching English as a Second Language, and my Earlychildood Endorsement.
After we had our first son, I absolutely loved teaching him new things and watching him learn, so I decided to go back to school to pursue teaching. I love teaching all subject areas, and am constantly pursuing professional development, so that I continue to add to my teaching tool box. I like to integrate subjects across reading, writing, math, and science. Open ended problem solving in math and STEM are constants in my classroom, as well as hands on learning in all subjects.
I grew up in Lawrence and attended Deerfield, West, and Lawrence High. When I graduated, I moved to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona. I met my husband in Arizona and we have 3 sons and a daughter. Two of our sons have graduated college, the youngest is a senior in college at U of A, and our daughter is a sophomore at Freestate.
