My Message

Hi, my name is Tina Garrison and excited to be the Director Of Curriculum and Instruction at Sun Valley Academy! I have been in education for about 25 years in various educational roles such as a teacher in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, & 7th grades; a Master Teacher; a College Outreach Supervisor; and as a Dean. I began my career in California teaching migrant farming families, then spent a couple of years teaching in Texas, and Arizona has been my home for the past 10 years. I love teaching, learning, and inspiring others to pursue their dreams and goals. During the summer months I also coach and train new teachers with Teach for America I am the proud mother of one daughter enjoy spending time with her. When I have free time I like to crochet, watch movies and make crafts. I look forward to getting to know all of the Sun Valley scholars and families.
