Our District Legacies

Creating educators is what this family has done for generations! Stephanie Macias and her children, Matt and Megan, share their commitment to their students and to each other. This Legacies segment is a poignant expression of gratitude by Matt and Megan to their mother, acknowledging her challenges as a single parent and the gifts of vision and passion they received from her. Pistor, Valencia and Maldonado students are all benefiting from this family’s giving spirit and hard work. As Tucson Unified students, these three Macias’s attended eight different Tucson Unified schools.

Stephanie's father taught at Warren for 30 years and many aunts are teachers. We thank them for their service to our schools and community, and for sharing their story.
