  • MarĂ­a Federico Brummer
    The roots of the Federico family are firmly implanted in the Tucson Unified School District. Three generations ago, the parents of María Federico Brummer, who is now the district's Mexican American Student Services Director, were the first in the family to attend and graduate high school.

    Maria's father, José, attended elementary school at Government Heights (which is now Hollinger), middle school at Wakefield and high school at Pueblo. Her mother attended Robison, Mansfeld and Tucson High.

    When her family moved out to the east side, young Maria began her schooling at Dunham Elementary, before attending Secrist Middle School and Santa Rita High School. Her brothers also joined her at Secrist and Santa Rita. Her daughter is now at Davis enrolled in the dual-language program.

    Maria's filial ties to the district extend past her immediate family members. Her aunt and uncle are teachers at Sewell, and another aunt works in exceptional education at Catalina. Her father is currently a bus driver as well.

    For Maria, Tucson Unified School District means many things. It's in the stories her father would share about corporal punishment over his culture. It's in the walls of Wakefield, where she currently works and where her nana's house used to reside next to. It's also in the many schools she taught at, including Doolen as part of the University of Arizona's APEX program, Hohokam, Palo Verde and Tucson High.

    María Federico Brummer and her family connections to our district have galvanized her every day pursuits for our students, teachers and families.
