As a native of Southern Arizona, Theresa has spent the last fifteen years teaching and coaching in public and private schools in her hometown of Tucson, Arizona. The best thing about teaching is learning along with the students because of the unique and fascinating perspective every sentient being brings to the art of communication. It is an honor for her to help students impact our world by helping them master reading, writing, speaking, listening, and critical thinking techniques.

She has sponsored Poetry Out Loud events and supported students participating in Storycorps. In addition, Theresa has assisted students in developing personal belief statements in mediums ranging from traditional essays, speeches, short stories, and poetry to painting, theater arts, dance, and film making. Dr. Chavez considers teaching to be an art and learning to be a lifelong endeavor. She hopes to continue to glorify God with her life as a teacher.
