Our District Legacies

Justin Enriquez attended Tucson High to continue the family tradition. There, he found his passion for mariachi. Mariachi is a way of life for him as a teacher and professional--it's the only music that he feels a real connection with. He views being back at Tucson High as a teacher as an honor. He provides a safe place for students in his classrooms. His fellow teachers include both those he went to school with and those he studied under. "You're only going to get as far as you want to go," he says, reminding students that the resources exist to help students achieve goals and dreams. "For me, TUSD is about family," he says.
