Mrs. Tamara Boylan
I graduated from the University of Arizona in 1991 with my B.A. in Elementary Education. After graduation, I moved to Washington and taught for 2 years in a rural school. My next move brought me to New York where I taught in Westchester County, which is north of NYC. I did not enjoy shoveling my driveway in the winter and I returned to Arizona. Tesseract, a private school in Paradise Valley, hired me to teach sixth grade for two years. When Julianna was born, I became a stay-at-home mom and master's degree student. When my youngest daughter, Ashley, went to first grade I returned to work with an M.A. in Elementary Education. I taught at Copperwood Elementary School in the Peoria Unified School District for the past sixteen years. Fifteen of those years were in a self-contained gifted classroom. This is my first year at Mountain Shadows.
