Hi. I'm Tamara I grew up in a small town. It is true, Friday nights were spent under stadium lights or under the stars.
Sports taught me to be responsible, learned about the importance of teamwork, determination and patience.
Especially during the fall because my dad was a high school football coach.
I am the oldest child in my family, I grew up with one sister. She is two years younger than me and has been my best friend my whole life. We are still very close, and I love spending time with her and my little nephew.
We spent a lot of time at different sporting events. This included my own practices from little league and summer league basketball and golf lessons. Sports played a big role in my life. It taught me a great deal too. I learned to be responsible, learned about the importance of teamwork, determination and patience.
My family always went on summer vacations. We spent most of those at the lake. We also traveled many various places from Washington State to Cozumel, Mexico. Growing up learning about new places was something we enjoyed together as family.
My family also owns a ranch with cows, horses, wild life and open pastures. Growing up I would spend many days in the summer at the ranch. We still spend a lot of time on the ranch with my family.
I graduated college in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in visual communications and then got my teaching certification. I loved drawing and coloring growing up and that is what lead me to this degree. I started as a High School English and Art teacher. I worked in this area for two years then moved to third grade. I have been teaching third grade English and Reading now for four years. I love teaching young children. Watching them learn and grow is such a blessing in my life. Building these relationships with kids has taught me so much about the type of parent I want to be.
