Welcome to Harvest Preparatory Academy. I am Deana Salter, I’ve been at Harvest now since 2018. I am one of the Dual Credit College Instructors and Liasion between HPA and AWC. CTE Teacher certified in Mental and Social Services, Business, and Marketing. I am the Student Council Advisor for both Campuses. And this year I took on a new role as the Student Guidance and Behavior Coach. I am working on my Doctorate in Management and Organizational Leadership with a tentative graduation date of December 2021. Worked in the Behavioral Health System in Yuma for 13+ years and loved what I was doing. However, when I found myself in the classroom I fell in love with it. I will not do anything different moving forward. The education arena is where I feel I belong. This year taking on the Behavior Coach position has given me the opportunity to utilize the behavioralist skills I gained over the years working in BH. I am able to teach what I did through CTE and now I utilize those skills to support and guide students. Couldn’t ask for anything more!
