Welcome! My name is Gloria Garza-Wells. I will be sharing my love for teaching your Freshman World History/Honors World History students. I am an Arizona native, originally from Tucson living in the East Valley since 2013.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education, GO DEVILS! I am very active in the Chandler Community and love bringing people together while sharing my beautiful Mexican culture with Ballet Folklorico/Mexican Folk Education.

My Educational Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is to foster enthusiasm. Learning can be fun. Spending time with dancers my whole life has shown me that enthusiasm begets enthusiasm, and my own enthusiasm in the classroom has been recognized by students and colleagues. Students' diverse backgrounds, motivations and skills, however, mean that they bring their own interests to learning encounters. In order to encourage their engagement and development, I therefore strive for a classroom that seeks and supports students' ideas and interests. Student diversity is in this way not just a reality, but also a valuable resource. Starting from students' own knowledge and experience can in this way spark analysis and encourage an enthusiasm for the social sciences.
