Tia Begay

Congratulations Mrs. Begay! She was presented with a Teacher Excellence Award this morning at Los Ninos Elementary School. Mrs. Begay received flowers and a plaque from TVT, a Ben’s Bell from Ben’s Bells Project, a $100 gift card to Office Depot, and Humble Pie Tucson will be delivering pizza to her class today! Thanks for all you do, Mrs. Begay! Sunnyside Unified School District

Tia was nominated by her colleague, Lucinda Fair, who writes, “Tia is an exceptional educator. Her passion and dedication to her students is something teachers should strive to achieve. Her ability to bring laughter into the classroom is effortless, while maintaining a managed classroom and positive environment. She goes above and beyond the job in countless ways; including integrating a classroom theme to ensure character growth and equality using class meetings, utilizing positive reinforcements, and gifting monthly free books to each student’s personal library. 100 words will never be enough to express the drive and care Tia expresses for her career and students. She is truly deserving of this award.”
