Los Niños Elementary teacher, Tia Tsosie-Begay is one of three local educators profiled as part of the short film, Teaching in Arizona.

Tia Lei Tsosie-Begay is a member of the Navajo tribe from Northern Arizona who came to Tucson from the Navajo Reservation in 1998 to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona.

In 2002, Tia graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and again in 2005 with a master’s degree in Educational Leadership. She has been a general education teacher for students in grades first through fourth, and also taught physical education teacher for students in kindergarten through 8th grade. Tia also has spent several years coaching and mentoring others as a Title I Program Facilitator.

She says her most satisfying days are when she feels that a student is able to articulate learning in their own words. She also strives to find ways to fund her students’ personal libraries because she believes that books should be in everyone’s home.

The film will be screened at the Let's Talk Ed event on September 20th, as part of the 10th Anniversary of Tucson Values Teachers.
