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.
