Mrs. Tara E. Deeb
Welcome! I'm so glad you're here and I look forward to getting to know you. I've been teaching for 23 years in Tucson. I taught Computer Technology and Technological Careers for 6 years and since then I've been teaching 7th grade math, (and sometimes 6th, 8th, or 9th). I love math and teaching, so I am blessed with the perfect career! I am married to a high school Spanish teacher. We have two daughters and 2 dogs. I'm originally from New York, but have lived in Tucson since 1981. In my spare time, I enjoy any activities outside; swimming, hiking, biking, and walking the pups!
I love teaching middle school. You keep me on my toes and make me laugh. You have no idea how cute you are. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach you! I’m proud of all your accomplishments and unique attributes!
