Introducing New Staff: Mr. Alejandro Tyler


Allie Highsmith, Herald Reporter

At Arapahoe this year, we have a multitude of new staff. From English to Science, there are almost too many new staff members to count. I had the chance to sit down with one new staff member, Math teacher Mr. Alejandro Tyler, and chat about his teaching career before Arapahoe, and a couple other details about him.

Q: Have you taught before? If so, where?

A: I taught at the University of Houston before going to Heritage and then coming to Arapahoe.  

Q: What classes do you teach?

A: Algebra I and II.  

Q:  I’ve taught high school for three years, but was at Houston before that.  

Q: Where did you grow up and go to college?

A: I was born in Fort Collins but moved around in the states a lot while I was growing up.  I went to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.  Then I moved to Houston to follow my then girlfriend, now wife, before moving back to Colorado.  

Q: What country would you most like to travel to and why?

A: I’d like to visit Australia since it’s a lot easier to relax on vacation when you can enjoy a country but not feel lost by a totally different culture and different language.  

Q: What’s something unique about you?

A: I’m half mexican and my wife is vietnamese, so our kids are half vietnamese, a quarter white, and a quarter mexican.  So, their favorite foods are quesadillas, pizza, and vietnamese pho.
