Connect With Us


Welcome parents, staff, and students! Please reach out if you need support. I work with students on character traits, friendship building, conflict resolution, goal setting, growth mindset, and emotional regulation. I can help you get connected with community resources in times of need. You can contact me via email at plumb.joanna@cusd80.com, by phone at 480-883-4381, or we can set up a time to conference together.

My Education and Professional Background

Education has been my passion for as long as I can remember. This is my fifth year at Tarwater working with students on their social emotional needs as well as coordinating student services. I have twelve years of experience teaching students with disabilities in the resource room setting. Four years were at the junior high level and eight years were at the elementary level. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a teaching certification for Special Education.

My Educational Philosophy

My philosophy includes building relationships with students, families, and staff so that we can collaborate as a team to ensure student success. When you walk into my office my goal is for you to feel it is a safe place to communicate and that you are welcomed. I am here to encourage students as well as give them strategies for problem solving. If they believe in themselves they can achieve whatever they set out to do.
