Deana Salter BS, MPA

Welcome to Harvest Preparatory Academy.  Iam Deana L Salter BS, MPA.  I am the CTE Mental and Social Services Instructor, Student Council Advisor, High School Dual Credit instructor and DC Liaison between HPA & Arizona Western College.  I have been with Harvest for 3 years; teaching is my 2nd career.  Before the education field I worked as a supervisor in the Behavioral Health Field for 13+ years here in Yuma, AZ.  I have a certificate in Early Childhood education, and Associates in Administration to Justice studies.  My undergraduate degree is in Criminology with a dual minor of psychology and sociology.  I Attended Ashford University and received a Master’s in Public Administration with an Emphasis in Business.  At this time, I am working on my doctoral degree in Management and Organizational Leadership with University of Phoenix. 


Here at Harvest, I have the honor to teach college level DC credit classes in Management, Business and Psychology.  I am also a CTE mental health and social services Instructor.    The best part of the time in the classroom is getting to know the students and making the classroom comfortable and exciting to have a different experience in learning. Because the data is different and maybe a bit harder, it’s important to me that they have a learning environment where they feel comfortable and safe.  It is very different from working in a supervisor’s role, but I LOVE what I’m doing and I have committed not just to me but the students in my classroom that every day they will walk away with something new and with a smile!
