Meet the Principal

Portrait of Emily DeanDear Asante Preparatory Academy Families,

I am extremely excited to be able to serve as the Principal at Asante Preparatory Academy. I began my educational journey almost twenty years ago as a classroom teacher.  I have had some amazing opportunities in the last two decades in various roles including teacher, media specialist, assistant principal, principal, and as an educational consultant in the states of Arizona and New York.  

While I was originally born in Indiana, I grew up in a military family and moved around most of my childhood. I then married a Marine and continued to travel until my husband and I decided to settle down with our family in Arizona.  Since we established our roots here in 1999, my husband and I have become proud members of our community and have raised our two children here. Both of them attended schools in Dysart. Both my son and daughter are now  students at Arizona State University studying engineering.

I believe that each child deserves the very best education and should have the opportunity to  achieve his/her personal best.  I am committed in working collaboratively together to create a culture of excellence here in our school community for all students.
Please do not hesitate to email me at [email protected], or you can call me at 623-523-8900 with any questions or to discuss opportunities to be involved in our school community.  I look forward to working with you!

Emily Dean
