Tuesday Arizaga

Tuesday Arizaga

English Learner (E.L.) Teacher
Oxford High School

“It is such an honor to have been selected for this recognition by the staff at OHS. I would like to thank everyone here for their support and assistance this year. I cannot begin to express how fortunate I am to work with such an incredible group of people.”

 

The Oxford School District is proud to recognize Oxford High School teacher Tuesday Arizaga as our Employee of the Week. Mrs. Arizaga helps make our district a great place to work and learn.

Here’s what Oxford High School has to say about Mrs. Arizaga:

“Mrs. Arizaga has been invaluable in her assistance with the English Language Learners. She patiently helps my E.L. students with all of their work and never complains. She adopts each Hispanic student as her own and helps them assimilate to the culture, encourages them to stay in school, and helps all of them with their school work. We have a large Hispanic community, and it’s growing, and she is very, very needed. She does an amazing job.”

“Tuesday is not just a classroom teacher but a community advocate, a safe space, a legal advisor, a mother, a counselor, and a protector for so many in our OHS community. She works tirelessly to give all of our students a voice.”

“She always works to keep her students caught up in classes and encourages them to come to her room any time of the day for help.”

“She is always working with students, other teachers, and parents to help our E.L. population be in the best possible position to succeed.”

“Tuesday works very hard with our E.L. students. She also is in charge of ACT testing. Very deserving of this honor.”

“Mrs. Arizaga is HOME for the E.L. students. They don’t feel alienated, different or left out when they are with her. She is their person at OHS; the person who makes things less scary, more understandable and makes them feel like they are a part of OHS.”

“Tuesday works tirelessly to be an advocate for an often overlooked portion of our student body. She works not just with our high school students but also their families and their younger siblings at other schools. She is a resource 24/7 for the community and her students, and is also a wonderful colleague to work with.”

“Mrs. Arizaga really works well with all of her students. She makes sure they have what they need to be successful. She has the patience and the compassion to handle each student’ unique circumstance because she knows how to work with the whole student, not just certain areas.”

“Mrs. Arizaga goes above and beyond to support our English Language Learners. She makes it a point to get to know them and their families. Mrs. Arizaga is indispensable to classroom teachers as she is always willing to collaborate with teachers to meet the needs of our E.L.L. students. She is an outstanding E.L.L. advocate - always going to bat for them and serving as a voice to improve their learning experience.”

“Tuesday works very hard and advocates for her students every day. We are lucky to have her!”

Congratulations, Mrs. Arizaga! You’re a great representative of the #ChargerNation.
