The Casa On The Rez (About)
I briefly taught high school in a school designed for Tohono O'odham students. My students often called me, "Ms. Casa On The Rez". My last name is not typical for our tribe, so the name stuck. I added the "off the rez" to the title of this blog because I no longer live on the reservation (though I commute there daily for work). I am an academic advisor at a Tribal Community College in Sells, but I live in Tucson, Arizona.
I'm interested in honing my creative writing skills . I tend to draw from my personal experiences, memories or observations. I also may share and overshare my experiences as an educator, a wife, and a mother of almost-teenage, twin daughters.
I enjoy reading, writing, baking and family time.
I strongly believe in Native Education, Peace, Equality and the need for Humor.
