I love teaching! I also love learning. That is why I decided to become a teacher. My mother taught primary school and took me with her to work. As one result, I learned to read at the age of three. Therefore, I do not put time limits on students abilities or potential.
I also grew up as a military kid, moving often to various states and countries. I am blessed to have seen and experienced a variety of cultures. I even joined the Navy and enjoyed many more experiences. In addition, I married a career Navy man and we raised our sons to appreciate multiculturalism. Once my last child went to school, I attended college to study Early Childhood Education and graduated with a 3.5 GPA.
Broadway 2-3 Grades
As a child, I loved learning and going to school. I believe there can be joy and delight in all learning. All children need to feel confident as they grow in the classroom. My two grown children were raised this way. I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. We still go every year to Flagstaff to see the aspen leaves change.
“Read every day to grow in every way!”
Broadway 4-5 Grades
I attended Catalina High School and graduated on our bicentennial year (1976). I went directly to the University of Arizona and graduated in four years with a B. S. in mechanical Engineering. I received a B.A. in Elementary Education from Prescott College in 2003. Since then, I passed the AEPA (?) in math (2013). Therefore I am highly qualified to teach all subjects in math in the state of Arizona. I always wanted to be a teacher since I was in the 8th grade. Teaching is my calling (engineering was not.) I have traveled to Canada, New England, the states in the New England area, and the states along the gulf of Mexico. Hobbies that I have had since middle school include: running, reading, culinary arts, rock climbing, and hiking. I ran the 880 for the U of A track team back in the 1970’s. Education quote from my dad: “ It’s easy to see if someone belongs in teaching. They have to love kids and remember what it’s like to be a kid.”
Broadway 7- 12 Grades ELA/SS
My name is Mr Haque and I’m teaching ELL and Social Studies. My passion is the field of teaching which started at Arizona State University, where I was a secondary Education History major. I was also a Social and Family Dynamics researcher. Throughout my experiences teaching and traveling, I have encountered all types of students and I strongly believe in the field of education.
Broadway 7-12 Grades Math/Science
I went to school at Catalina Foothills High School and the University of Arizona. I decided to become a teacher in order to get closer to my goal of designing curriculum based on maximizing the potential brain growth in students. I especially love teaching at TIA because of their International lens. I myself have traveled to various places including Mexico, China, and all over the US (30 states). I was born in Oak Park, Illinois. I moved to Tucson when I was eight years old. I grew up playing baseball and drumming. In high school I quit athletics and became dedicated to music. Then, later in college, I decided to pursue neuroscience/cognitive science as a degree career path. I want to be remembered for making a significant contribution to the field.
I attended high school at Mountain View and I have completed partial schooling at Pima Community College. The reason why I decided to become a teacher is because both my parents have been teachers and have become extremely successful people so I want to follow their footsteps. The places that I have visited are many. I am very fortunate to say that I have visited three countries, US, Canada, and Mexico. I also have visited almost every state in the US and Mexico.

I grew up in a military family. I lived overseas 9 years and I play clarinet and saxophone. I want to be remembered for promoting love of reading. “Live, learn, read!”
