Grove Valley Administration


Deborah West - Principal

     My name is Deborah West and this is my 2nd year as the Principal of Grove Valley.  This is my 26th year in education. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Central Oklahoma. I spent my first 18 years in education as an Early Childhood classroom teacher.  I worked in both Oklahoma City Public Schools and Putnam City Public Schools while I was teaching.  After completing my Masters in Educational Leadership, also at UCO, I was hired as an Intern at Grove Valley and spent the 2012-2013 school year here.  The next year I went to Coolidge Elementary for 2 years followed by 3 years at Rose Union Elementary, serving as the Assistant Principal in both of these schools. I have an awesome husband and two daughters that are my world.  My oldest is pursuing her Master’s degree at UCO and my youngest is a sophomore at OSU.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, projecting, scrapbooking, movies and spending time with my family.  I am so happy to be back at Grove Valley and look forward to another wonderful year in Deer Creek!


Aspen Bischoff - Assistant Principal

My name is Aspen Bischoff and this is my 3rd year at Grove Valley Elementary.  After spending two years in first grade, I am excited to start a new role as Assistant Principal.  This will be my 12th year in education.  I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Mount Vernon Nazarene University and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Southern Nazarene University.  I spent my first 9 years teaching in Plano, Texas, working with all age groups in the classroom and as a gifted and talented specialist before moving to Oklahoma.  My husband is the Director of Tennis and boy’s head coach at Heritage Hall Prep School. We have two kiddos who will be starting 2nd grade and pre-k this year.  In my spare time I enjoy exercising, reading, painting and vacationing with my family at the beach.  I am so excited to be back at GV and look forward to serving in a new capacity!
