Ms. Erika Torres
My name is ErikaTorres and I teach ELA 1-2 and IB ELA 5-6. This is my fifth year at Barry Goldwater and I am very excited about this school year! I am a Phoenix native and I grew up in the Paradise Valley Unified School District where I graduated from the IB program at North Canyon High School. More recently, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education from Northern Arizona University and a graduate degree in English Education from Arizona State University. I am a co-adviser for G-Crew and National Honor Society. I also oversee the CAS program and Extended Essay process for IB DP students. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going out to eat, shopping, and reading. My number one priority is to make sure your student has a positive experience in my classroom.
