A message from our Dean of Students

Dear Aztecs!

I am very grateful and excited to be working at Tierra Del Sol! In the short time I have been here on this campus, I can already feel the strong sense of community and engagement needed to make this culture feel like home. It is that feeling of family and motivation that helps us progress and work towards our overall goals, thus continuing to grow and become lifelong learners. The faculty here, including myself, are here to support you with anything that you need! My door is always open, pop in and say hello, as well as in the quad!

Mr. Hinzo
