The Tucson Unified School District's Language Acquisition Department is committed to facilitating students' and parents' acquisition of English by providing translation and interpretation services in all major languages spoken by families in the District.
Our services support both the acquisition of the English language by non-native speakers of English and the acquisition of world languages and American Sign Language.
For the first time, a teacher from the Tucson Unified School District has received the 2018 Arizona EL Teacher of the Year! Ms. Miriam Romero from Carrillo K-5 Magnet School has been selected among thousands of teachers across the state.
Ms. Romero was surprised with the award during a school assembly where students and colleagues celebrated her and this well-deserved recognition.
Superintendent of Public Instruction, Diane Douglas, made the announcement of this great state honor. Tucson Unified School District Superintendent, Dr. Gabriel Trujillo, and Patricia Sandoval-Taylor, Language Acquisition Interim Director, were present at the event. "TUSD has never had a state winner and we are more than excited to share the news," Sandoval-Taylor said.
Ms. Romero will also be honored among EL teachers from across the state at the State OELAS conference in December.
