Mrs. Allison Adkins - American Government, Economics and US History teacher
I began teaching at DVHS in August of 1999, after 4 years teaching in the Oakland Unified School District. During my time at Deer Valley, I taught AP Government and Poilitics, American Government CP, Psychology CP and Leadership. I took on the role of Activities Director and Leadership teacher in the fall of 2013. Since the fall of 2019, I am back as full-time social studies instructor, a role which I sorely missed! I believe that Deer Valley has so much to offer to its students and community, and I'm proud to have been a Wolverine for 21 years!
