Ms. ArriagaNorth High School
Community Organization Partner
Ms. Arriaga, a Spanish teacher at North High School, helps to open the door to higher education for her students and their parents. For the last four years, Ms. Arriaga has prepared her students for the annual Phoenix College World Languages Competition for high school students – creating a college campus opportunity that many students may not typically experience. She mentors and encourages them to consider a college education and provides them with information on the admissions process, financial aid, and advisement. She also teaches parents of North High School students, providing information on college readiness and encourages them to consider Phoenix College as an option for continuing education for themselves and their children. Recognizing the opportunities that Higher Education can provide, Ms. Arriaga is a strong advocate to get her students, and their parents, to start thinking about education beyond the high school experience.Golden Bear Champion AwardAZ Diamondbacks MOST VALUABLE TEACHERBest Practices AwardWorld Language Leader RecognitionEmployee of the MonthNorth High School prides itself in being an exemplary learning community in which all members experience academic rigor, accountability, diversity and involvement in order to maximize individual potential.Every Student, Every Day.¡BIENVENIDOS!
