Our Team Members


Tiffany Hodge
Director of Student Services

Tiffany began her career in education in 1994 as an Early Childhood Educator. At an early age, she worked as a preschool teacher and later as Preschool Assistant Director. Through this experience she helped develop a new childcare center along with its DES and DHS licensing. Her preschool experience allowed her the opportunity to work through the process of accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Her work in preschool helped her realize her passion for the learning process and how teaching could help shape that process for children. Tiffany then went on to the University of Arizona and Prescott College where she obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a Minor in Early Childhood Education. 


Tiffany went on to teach in the elementary classroom for 13 years in both public and charter schools in the Tucson community. In 2016, she completed her certification in Reading Recovery and spent four years working as a Tier 3 Interventionist and Literacy Coach and Mentor. With her long-standing love of education and aspiration to be a school leader, she obtained an Educational Administration Degree and Principal Certification. In June 2019, Tiffany was chosen to take on the new role of Director of Student Services. An active member in the Tucson education community, Tiffany is a member of the Southern Arizona Special Education Administrators and the Tucson Regional Educator Collaborative, and she is a Pima County Superintendent’s Office Energize Advisory Board Member. 


Chandler Hybiak
Student Services Secretary

Tanque Verde recently welcomed Chandler Hybiak to the Student Services department this past summer. Chandler graduated in 2018 from the University of Arizona with degrees in Psychology and Communications. One of her areas of interest for research in college was dementia and how aging affects the brain. After graduating from the university, she went to work at a retirement community, collecting data on resident’s cognition and participation in activities. This experience led her to her current position at TVUSD as the Student Services Secretary. Chandler is guided by Director Tiffany Hodge and Lead Psychologist Ivonne Olivas in managing student information and data on special education, open enrollment, student needs, and much more.

Ivonne Olivas
Lead School Psychologist

Ivonne Olivas is in her third year as Lead School Psychologist at TVUSD,  and completing her 13th year as a practicing school psychologist. She attended the University of Arizona, where she received her Bachelors’ in Psychology. Then she returned to the University of Arizona for graduate school where she obtained an Education Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) in school psychology and began working at Tucson Unified School District. She worked there for eight years before moving to Continental Elementary School District,  a small school district in Green Valley, AZ. Working in different districts has required her to wear many hats, which allowed her to gain experience in the administrative side of special education as well as addressing students' academic and mental health needs. These work experiences have allowed her to work with diverse populations in southern Arizona and learn about the different needs across communities. 


Ivonne is currently serving as a Southern Regional Director for the Arizona Association of School Psychologists (AASP). Here she strives to serve as an agent of progress in the recognition of the school psychology profession. As a member of TVUSD’s Student Services Department, Ivonne works with special education staff to ensure that federal law and state regulations are being followed. She collaborates with staff and provides guidance so that they can navigate all that special education documentation requires. Ivonne also works with students and staff at Emily Gray Junior High School. The thing she enjoys most about her job is working directly with students. “I love seeing their faces light up when they problem solve or tell me a funny story.”
