Mrs. Tara Tessmer
I am so excited to be back in third grade again.
This will be my 11th year at Sechrist. Over the past 11 years I have been able to work as a paraprofessional in grades K-3, teach a 4-5 combo class, and teach third grade. Previously, I have taught at a Montessori School here in Flagstaff. I have also taught 5th grade down in Peoria, AZ. After teaching or aiding in every grade, I can honestly tell you that 3rd grade is one of my favorites!
I not only love to teach, but I love to learn. I have my Bachelors and Masters in Elementary Education, from NAU. I continue to go to workshops and classes. It is important to be a LIFE LONG LEARNER.
Most importantly, I have a wonderful family. I have an awesome husband, David. He teaches Engineering at Coconino High School in the CIT Program. I have a son Micah who will also be at Coconino High School as a junior this year and a daughter Lorelei who is going to be a freshman. I also have a puppy Daisy Mae, a tortoise Mr. Beans (he is our class pet). My life is full of love and joy. I am blessed!
