My Bio

Hello! My name is Talia Polk. I attended GCU and am earning my Bachelor’s degree in English. I am excited to work with students from 7th-9th this year. We will be learning cursive, reading novels, analyzing short stories and poems and more!  

I grew up in Mesa, AZ and have lived here since I was 8 years old. However, I was born in California and have traveled to many states in my life on the East coast. I plan to teach for many years here in Arizona due to the warm weather and found community.  

When I’m not teaching I like reading, going to concerts and shows, playing with my dog, and going to movies. I’m excited to get to know each student and family I have. Feel free to reach out to me any time and let’s have a great year!
