Welcome to our Classroom Website
    Hi!  My name is Deidre Pihonsky.  I am one of the DCD Centerbased teachers here at Dayton Elementary.  I have 15 years of teaching experience the majority of which has been in Ohio, where I grew up.  We moved to Minnesota about 7 years ago now and I have been working in the Anoka-Hennepin school district for the past 6 years.  I have worked in special education for the majority of my teaching experience, both in a resource room setting and in a classroom setting.
    When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my two energetic boys, and my husband.  We enjoy riding bikes, playing soccer, reading, cooking and just spending time together in general.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch his/her growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
