Ms. Paloma Gutierrez




I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas but I call Arizona home. I am a product of Mesa Public Schools, as I attended Red Mountain High School. I am happy to be back in the district now in the role of a teacher.

I love learning new things about history and sharing that knowledge with my students. Through my content area I hope to help my students become successful in life after high school. This year I have the opportunity to teach Government and IB MYP Honors American History, two of my personal favorite content areas. In addition to teaching history, I am the sponsor of the History Club and Co-Sponsor for the Westwood Quizbowl team.

I currently hold a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in history from Arizona State University. Go Sun Devils!  While I am not teaching or grading papers, I enjoy reading, traveling, and looking after my 5 year old chihuahua named Gypsy (pictured above). I am very excited to be a Westwood Warrior for a 4th year! Tear 'em up Westwood!
