Glendale Contacts

Jeff Graves
I am Mr. Graves, Glendale principal this year. I come with three years’ principal experience at Metro campus. I have a special education background, and this is my seventh year with Intelli. I have about 20 years in education, and just love working with kids. I’ve worked at a couple of other districts, but the IntelliSchool approach to education is far and away the most effective in response to student need. I really enjoy the camaraderie and teamwork so valued and encouraged by the leadership here. Research shows that family/home support is critical to student success. I encourage all guardians to reach out anytime with questions or concerns; Glendale staff stand ready to help. On breaks from school, I really enjoy spending time in the mountains. At home, I like spending time with my wife and best friend Melissa, reading, and hiking.

Ana Aguilera
Hi Everybody!
My name is Ana Aguilera and I am the secretary at the Glendale IntelliSchool location. I started right after COVID-19 hit, so I have not met many of you in person, but I am slowly and surely getting to know more and more of you as time passes. I love assisting the teachers, students or parents in any way that I can and look forward to the day we all get to meet at school again! A little bit about me is that I am currently a student at Phoenix College, hoping to transfer to ASU to get a bachelors in Applied Science, where I can start a career in Medical Laboratory Technology (a long way to go, so I’ll be with you all for a while!). If I am not at school or work, you can find me playing my Nintendo switch and drinking Boba.

Tasha Messina
My name is Tasha Messina and I am the school counselor at the IntelliSchool Glendale location. This is my third year with IntelliSchool and I really enjoy the students, staff, and atmosphere of our community. I have been working with students and adolescents for over 16 years in various settings. I have worked as a teacher, tutor, mentor, group facilitator, and mental health therapist in schools and behavioral health settings. At Intelli, I work with the students to assist with social/emotional needs, academic planning, post-secondary career planning, student activities, and incentive initiative programs and as a homeless liaison as well as assistance with any other needs that may arise. I love being a counselor at IntelliSchool, and the students I get to work with daily have been absolutely amazing! On my free time, I enjoy singing with my band, playing roller derby, hiking new exciting trails in AZ, and spending time with my two Chihuahuas Bella and Cheech.

Stacy Wong
Hello All. My name is Ms. Wong. I have been teaching for more than 11 years now. I am a trained special education teacher, which makes me EXTRA special. I also help facilitate all History, Science, and Elective classes offered through our school. A little about me: I’m a self-proclaimed nerd who enjoys gaming, crafting, cooking, and gardening. I’m not very good at any of them, but I enjoy them none the less. I am excited to work with all of you, so don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Tracy Tauscher
I have been teaching for 44 years at many levels in many environments. I have taught at trade schools, public high schools, community colleges and charter high schools. I began my career teaching home economics teacher but have taught math for the last 35 years. In addition to normal high school and college math courses, I have taught math to pre-school students in a parks and rec program as well as teaching math to students that were going to be elementary teachers. I have taught at many institutions in my long career but my time at IntelliSchool has been the most rewarding and enjoyable of them all. I love that I get to work on a one-to-one basis with students who are motivated and always do what we ask of them. Just as important to me is the incredible team that I am surrounded by on a daily basis who have the same professional commitment to the students. On an interesting note, I am a very competitive person and love playing board games and cards. I apply that competitiveness to teaching math to kids and I want them to win at math.
