About Me

Mrs. Pamela Somerville


Welcome - I am from the San Diego area and have been living in Tucson for the past 16 years. I have a husband named Jim who is an Electrical Engineer.  We have two grown daughters and have been blessed with two amazing grandchildren who are the center of our world. I enjoy spending time with my family and visiting San Diego as much as possible.  I have traveled all over Europe and lived in England for 5 years. 

I have a BS degree in Elementary Education from Prescott College and an AA degree in Business from the University of Phoenix. I have been teaching for 20 years and I am happy to say that I am now the 4th and 5th grade teacher for TIA West. I am passionate about teaching and believe students need to be able to internalize what they've discovered and apply it to the world around them. Learning "just facts" is not meaningful but Inquiry based learning is the key!
