Dr. Tara Archuleta of TUSD’s University High School is the recipient of our 2022 High School Teacher award. Dr. Archuleta clearly has the respect and admiration of her students as she guides them through this most difficult science while stressing collaborative learning and focusing on the real-world applications of what they’re studying. Her focus on research is critical to the students’ future success in college and helps them to consider the pursuit of STEM studies.
Dr. Archuleta’s influence extends well beyond her classroom and her students. Her contributions to University High’s Career and Technical education program and the SARSEF science fair have been instrumental in their success. Tucson is truly blessed to have a teacher of her quality and we are pleased to make this award of $500 to the teacher and another $500 to the school to be used by Dr. Archuleta to equip her class.
As our award winner, Dr. Archuleta will receive a check for $500 and another $500 will be gifted to University High for her to use to support her teaching. Her nomination will also be submitted for consideration at the next Rocky Mountain Regional Meeting.
