Shahrazad Encinias teaches English for Junior High and High School. She has a B.A. in Central American Studies with a minor in Spanish Language Journalism from Cal State Northridge. She also received a dual M.A. in Journalism and Latin American Studies from the University of Arizona. Bear Down!
Shahrazad has taught Journalism and Writing at Pima Community College. She taught History and English at a private school in the Dominican Republic before moving back to Tucson. Her real passion is journalism. It's there where she's investigated and reported all over Southern California, U.S.-Mexico region, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. She's a freelance journalist and wanderlust.
San Diego is home, but Tucson is where the heart is for her. She's a bit of a nerd for true crime stories and Investigation Discovery. She can't get enough Frasier Crane and Michael Scott in her life. Pizza is life.
