Ms. Lopez

Hello. My name is Ms. Lopez and I have been with Amphi since 2012. I was born in Uruguay, raised in New Jersey, and moved to Arizona to attend the UofA. I graduated from University of Arizona in 2007 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts with an emphasis on Drawing and Painting. I earned my teaching certificate from Pima Community College. 

Defining Moment in my Education

Prior to becoming a REACH Teacher I was an Art Teacher for 10 years. During that time, I noticed some students stand out with original ideas and or artwork. Most of those students belonged to the REACH program. That's when my interest in becoming a REACH Teacher began.  

Core Educational Belief

Students should have access to the best public education possible.
