    Ms. Contreras  
    I graduated from Carl Hayden High School in 2001, that year I was awarded a full scholarship from Project ENABLE and enrolled at South Mountain Community College to complete a two year teaching program.  I transferred to Arizona State University in the fall of 2004 and graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University in 2007 with a degree on Secondary Education with an emphasis in English Literature and Language.  I started teaching ESL classes in the Fall of 2007 at Carl Hayden High School and after two years I transferred to Central High School where I taught pre-emergent English to refugees students from Burma, Nepal, Tanzania, Iraq, Portugal, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Guatemala. In 2011 I transferred back to Carl Hayden and taught 9th grade English Literature/Language.  This year, I am part of the 12th grade English team.
