Hello Sun Valley Academy Family! My name is Donivyn Zanders, I am the Leader in Me Instructor at the Avondale Campus. This is my first year teaching, and I could not be more excited. I became a teacher to help students grow in the area of leadership. Leadership has always been my passion and I wanted to be able to pass that on to students. I chose Sun Valley Academy because the Leader In Me program was something I had never heard of, and as I learned more about it, I began to see the amazing impact that this program will have on our students. Any school that is willing to develop tomorrow’s leaders is top-notch in my book. SVA has provided me with the opportunity to build leaders for our future. A quick fun fact about me is I only write in cursive.
