Tiffany Boehle said the best part of her job is “the chance to be creative and facilitate projects that benefit PUSD students and families while solving problems along the way.”

As the Prescott Unified School District’s (PUSD) Director of Career and Technical Education (CTE), Tiffany manages a department of twelve CTE programs on the Prescott High School (PHS) campus.

“I enjoy helping students find career paths that benefit them and the community, and there are so many CTE opportunities that are available to students for free,” she said. “CTE offers students a low-risk opportunity to learn skills, develop professionalism and earn industry certificates that lead to steady employment and fill critical and high-demand professional needs of our community.”

As CTE Director since 2023, Tiffany also monitors programs for quality and compliance and reports to the Arizona Department of Education on enrollment, student testing data, credits and earned industry credentials.

A veteran in the district, Tiffany worked in the Grants Department, and then taught Spanish at PHS for more than ten years. “I loved teaching Spanish to the amazing students in those classes. With this new opportunity, I was ready for a professional change. It’s been fun to take on new projects and challenges and learn all the ins and outs of what CTE has to offer our students and families.”

Supporting PUSD’s position as a stand-apart district, Tiffany added, “We are PUSD #1 for many reasons. We constantly work to bring new programs and encourage deep-level learning and critical thinking, and we strive to incorporate technology to our campus to help learners prepare for college and careers.”

She said, “In addition, we have challenging courses taught by master teachers, a state-of-the-art theater and fine arts department, extremely competitive sports programs with more sports offerings coming next year, and a compassionate special education program and teachers with Special Olympics opportunities. We truly have something for every learner.”

District Superintendent Clark Tenney said, “Tiffany has been a teacher leader in PUSD for years, and it has been exciting to see the energy she has brought to her new district leadership role with us. Her passion to provide options for kids to be successful is inspiring and makes a difference for our students.

Hailing from a fifth-generation family farm in rural Nebraska, Tiffany shares with readers that she “drove a tractor to help lay irrigation pipe by the age of eight, and I had my farm permit allowing me to drive to junior high school in the eighth grade!”

She later studied abroad during her junior year at University of Nebraska at Lincoln and lived in Queretaro, Mexico during that work/study. “Living in Mexico was life changing for me, and it’s how I ended up becoming a Spanish teacher.”
