 A.J. Malis, Principal
(520) 760-0801 ext. 1002
I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona and went on to teach chemistry, AP Chemistry, and physics at Catalina Foothills and Salpointe Catholic. From 2000-2003, I took a brief period of time away from the classroom to work as an assistant volleyball coach at the University of Arizona. After leaving the UofA, I taught at Palo Verde HS for 8 years. In 2010, I began my career in administration when I took a position as an Instructional Support Assistant at Amphi Middle School and Ironwood Ridge High School. After I completed my Masters degree at Northern Arizona University I was promoted to assistant principal at Ironwood Ridge High School and served in that capacity for two years. I'm excited to be a part of the Tanque Verde Hawks family and I look forward to getting to know the students and families in the community.

I am a native Tucsonan. I come from a family of educators as my father and two uncles all retired as administrators with TUSD. I received my undergraduate degree from theUniversity of Arizona and began teaching 17 years ago. During my time as a teacher, I continued my education and earned my Masters through the University of Phoenix. In more recent years, I have been working as the Magnet Coordinator, 21st CCLC Coordinator, Summer School Coordinator, and Freshman Academy Coordinator at Palo Verde High Magnet School. These positions have exposed me to the need for all stakeholders in our community to work collaboratively in support of all student success. I am fortunate to be part of the Tanque Verde community and look forward to serving our students and their families.
