EdRising Arizona Teacher Leader Tania Gray named
Mohave County Rural Teacher of the Year
Excerpt from article in the Lake Havasu News:
Gray’s philosophy in education is simple; it begins with building the connection with students.
“Ultimately it comes down to having that relationship with students,” she said. “Once I can establish I can do the other things that result in higher test scores and production in the classroom. I also want to make the students feel successful … even the reluctant ones who haven’t been successful in the past.”
In August, Gray will interview for a chance to become Arizona’s Rural School’s Teacher of the Year.

On August 15, Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas, visited the Education Profession class at Mountain Ridge High School. This group of high school students is also part of the school's chapter of Educators Rising. Superintendent Douglas inspired Mrs. Moya's students to stay on their career path to become a teacher in Arizona. Her words of wisdom included many positive comments about the future of education in the state and her stories were uplifting. Her presentation is certain to resonate with the students in the class for a long time to come.
