I am very excited to be part of the Tara Oaks team! I am a graduate of the University of Memphis and hold a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also hold a master's degree from Arkansas State University in Curriculum and Instruction. The 2016-2017 school year will mark my 16th year of teaching. I taught Montessori first through third grade for one year and preschool for five years. This is my tenth year teaching ESL, or English as a Second Language. In the ESL program, children are supported academically and build their second language acquisition in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing through various engaging activities.
