Mrs. Tamara Chavez
Hello Sixth Grade Families. My name is Tamara Chavez. I am very excited to introduce myself as your student’s Social Studies teacher. I have a BA in Elementary Education from the University of Wyoming, a Master’s in Reading Education from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. I also have an endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education from Regis University. This year I am also beginning the process to become a Nationally Board Certified Teacher.
I came to Mirage last November. My family moved to Arizona from Parker, Colorado. I taught first grade and kindergarten in the Aurora Public Schools system and before that I taught kindergarten and first grade in the Elizabeth Public Schools. I look forward to getting to know each student and family this year.
