Ms. Alvarez

Hello, everyone! Let me begin by introducing myself, my name is Ms. Alvarez! I am so excited to be the 7th grade ELA teacher. This is my first year teaching and im so excited! I have lived in Tieton my whole life, I graduated from Highland in 2015 so it is nice to be back here. I received my bachelors degree through Central Washington University where I majored in Business that had an emphasis in leadership and mangement. Once I graduated from CWU in 2019, I began working at Garfield Elementary in Yakima as a paraprofessional. It was during this time that I decided I wanted to further my career and become a teacher. Wanting to become a teacher meant that I would have to go back to school so during the pandemic, I decided it was a good idea to get my masters! I graduated with my Masters in Teaching through Heritage University. Like I mentioned before, I am excited to work at Highland. My family was raised here, the community is awesome and it's a privilage to now be able to serve the students and families. I look foward to meeting all of you!
