Tamara Gwara is a New Upper School Science Teacher
Tammy is relocating from Mesa, Arizona, where for seven years she has been teaching chemistry (honors and Advanced Placement) at Desert Ridge High School. Prior to that, she spent five years in Aztec, New Mexico, teaching middle school science. She also has experience as a student council class advisor and basketball coach. Tammy served as an independent consultant in modeling instruction, leading workshops for other chemistry teachers. She is also a National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certified teacher, and has spent time during the last three years working with candidates as they complete their portfolios. Tammy's favorite pastime is singing, and she is very much looking forward to finding a choir to join in New York City. She would also love any suggestions for places where she might be able to watch some of her favorite West Coast sports teams.
