Welcome to my new Interventionist Assistant, Amanda Ugarte! Mrs. Amanda comes from Texas as well! She is married, with a 6-year old daughter, Ella, who is in 1st grade here at Tara Oaks, and has another baby girl, Mia, on the way! She has her Education degree with a major in Bilingual studies from the University of Texas in Arlington. She is certified to teach Early Childhood through 6th grade. She is fluent in Spanish, and taught bilingual Pre-K in Texas for 2 years. She has even worked with our Leveled Literacy program, Fountas & Pinnell, in college! This is her 3rd year teaching, and she is so excited to begin this new adventure. We are very excited to have her!
