Ms. Tornquist is overjoyed to continue teaching at Equitas Academy: a school where excellence is not just a far-fetched ideal, but something that is achieved every day in each and every scholar and teacher on campus. She was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and graduated in 2013 from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. The University of Arizona Wildcats have a saying, “Bear Down,” which means work hard even when the going gets tough, push through, show grit and never give up. Ms. Tornquist promises to “bear down” and be the best that she can be for her scholars, day in and day out, in hopes that it inspires them to bring their 'A' game not only into the classroom, but into every aspect of their lives.
