It is a great honor to serve as the principal of Tiffany Ridge. Education and learning has been an essential part of my entire life. Coming from a family of educators, marrying an educator and having a daughter in the profession has aided in my passion to create the high levels of educational experiences for all children. 

Prior to joining the Park Hill School District in 2018, I served in the Blue Valley School District for over 30 years as a teacher, school improvement specialist, coordinating teacher, instructional coach, and principal.  My husband, Joel is a high school physics teacher and we have three grown children.  I enjoy traveling, reading, gardening and spending time with my family.  Please feel free to contact me if you ever have questions or concerns.  Always remember, it’s a great day to be a Timberwolf!

Dr. Desiree Rios joined Tiffany Ridge Elementary in 2018.
