Greetings from the Principal and Assistant Principal

Hello Students & Families!

I grew up all around the White Mountains, this is my home. I am married and we have three beautiful children. We love the mountain lifestyle. We enjoy the outdoors and spending time as a family. I am a graduate of Show Low High School and Northern Arizona University. I have 16 years of experience in education. I have a Masters of Curriculum and Instruction and a Masters in Education Administration from Grand Canyon University. I believe that my rural experience in education will help me support the success of students.
I am excited to be here at Canyon Day Junior High. I believe all students can succeed given the opportunity. I am a firm believer that, 'It Takes a Village to Raise a Child,' and I am now a part of that village. It is a blessing to be a part of this community and I look forward to the opportunities and experiences working with the students and staff here at Canyon Day Junior High.

Greetings Students, Families, and Community!

My name is Brianna Endfield, Assistant Principal and Athletic Director of Canyon Day Junior High School. I am pleased to be a part of the Whiteriver Unified Administrative Team and a part of Canyon Day Junior High. I am a proud 2009 graduate of Alchesay High School.  I started initial employment with Whiteriver Unified in 2007 as a childcare attendant at Alchesay Beginnings while still in high school.  Upon high school graduation I have had the opportunity to serve multiple roles within the district including paraprofessional and coach. After a year away, to teach elsewhere, I returned to work with Whiteriver Unified in 2014. I have spent the last 9 years as an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher in the Exceptional Student Services Department. I have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Northern Arizona University in Occupational Education and Early Childhood Special Education. I am currently continuing my education with NAU to obtain my second Master’s degree in American Indian School Leadership. In serving as the Assistant Principal, I am hopeful that I will help students embrace learning and opportunities that leave a lasting impact on the future of every student I encounter. I am an advocate for students and their needs and vow to do everything in my power to bring the best of educational opportunities to our students. I come from a long line of educational professionals and embrace being able to serve our people, the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The Whiteriver Unified School District is like home to me and my family. You will find my partner driving one of our school buses and our children attending one of our district schools. I am a firm believer in the success of all students, across all abilities. I am eager to get started in this new endeavor!
