Tammy Hajovsky is an English teacher at New Mexico Connections Academy (NMCA). She joined NMCA in 2013 and has been teaching English literature for seventeen years. Ms. Hajovsky has a bachelor of science degree in communications from the University of Texas at Austin and a master’s degree in English education from New York University. She shares her story below:

“I began my teaching career in New York City, teaching English at Hunter College High School. I have taught English literature and composition in many states, including Alaska, Texas, California, Utah, and New Mexico. I have taught students in grades 6–12 including Advanced Placement® English. I have also taught literature and composition at the college level.

I am the master teacher at New Mexico Connections Academy. I teach grade 12 English and the AP English courses. I am also our mentoring coordinator and the training representative for all teachers. I absolutely love being a teacher at NMCA! I love our students and families! I enjoy the virtual setting as I feel I can truly connect with my students. One of the best things about NMCA is when we get together with our students for field trips.

I currently live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and I have three children. Joseph, 20, is studying engineering at Ohio State University; Elias, 18, is a senior at St. Michael’s High School; and Ella, 14, is a ninth grader at Monte Del Sol Charter School. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, watching movies, taking my dog to the dog park and for walks, and spending time with my family.”

I absolutely love being a teacher at NMCA! I love our students and families!
