Physical Education

Dean Pederson


I received a master’s degree in education from Northern Arizona University. I’m currently the physical education teacher at Pine Strawberry School. I received the teacher of the year award in Gila county in 2020. I also received the tear of the year for the state of Arizona in 2021. I enjoy teaching and look forward to spending every day with children in education. This will be my 52nd year of teaching and I wouldn’t trade a day of it. I enjoy the outdoors and love the 40 or so years I’ve lived in Pine. I’m blessed to work with the best students and staff in the world.
