Erica Giacoia

I am very glad to have joined PFFS-Downton in October of 2018 as a math tutor, Passion Project tutor, and After School Program. I was born and raised in Southeastern of Brazil and I moved to Tucson in January of 2017. 

My background includes a Bachelor’s in Math and a Master’s in Technological Education. I taught math in middle school through college for 23 years in Brazil. In addition, I have published six math textbooks for high school students.

As a teacher, I have always been passionate in my commitment to maximizing individual student performance. My goal is for students to be more confident in the use of math skills in school and in their daily life. 

From July of 2017 to December of 2018, I was a volunteer at Literacy Connects. There, I taught math as a volunteer for adults who were getting their GED.

I am excited to participate the PFFS community where I have the opportunity to live the amazing educational cycle of learning and teaching.
