Hello, welcome! My name is Tamara Juarez, and I teach ELA 1-2, ELA 3-4 Honors/MYP/Gifted, and Creative Writing. I've been at Barry Goldwater High School for seven years and have enjoyed being part of such a kind and nurturing community. Before I began teaching, I worked as a journalist for three years and had articles published in various local/national news outlets. My degree is in journalism, with a focus on public relations and mass communications, so I like to teach my students how each lesson and skill they learn in class can be applied to any field or career they may be interested in pursuing. If a parent/guardian ever needs to reach me, I can be contacted via email or phone.
