Meet The Principal

Sophia M. Begody


On behalf of DLES staff members, I would like to welcome everyone into Dzil Libei Elementary School! It is a privilege to serve as a principal to a group of dedicated staff and outstanding students! I look forward to creating relationships with parents to give our students the best possibility to strive for excellence in academics, athletics, and social and emotional growth. This has been a trying year for us all, but we will be working hard to create a positive collaborative educational experience, one that our students, parents, and teachers have never experienced before.

I would like to encourage each family to stay active in your child’s  education. Although the chaos, busyness, and unfamiliarity will be lingering in every household, we are here to support you and your child’s education. I am here to support you all. TCUSD has decided to adopt Schoology as our Learning Management System. Schoology enables our students, parents and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom. With Schoology, students can digitally submit  homework assignments, review grades, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take tests, write academic blogs, and more. As a parent, you will be able to view your child’s activity within the platform. All our students and parents will have virtual training videos to assist them in navigating all the components of the

Education is a partnership between the school and the home, and we are fully vested in partnering with families to ensure this school year meets your child’s potential. With that said, we will be available for any assistance to both students and parents. If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 928.283.1082 or By communicating and working together, I believe we can succeed in bringing your child the best educational opportunities.

It is my hope that you and your child enjoy the 2020-2021 school year at Dzil Libei Elementary School. I am proud to call myself a Hawk and I look forward to working together this year.
