My name is Tara Brouwer and this will be my fifth year teaching at West Side Elemetary!
I live in Marshall with my husband, Ty, our two boys, Taber (5 years old), Truett (2 years old) and our two fur babies, Harley & Hershey.
I graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University in 2008 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a Pre-primary specialty. This past summer I completed my Masters Degree through Augustana Universtiy. My area of concentration is Reading.
I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends, cooking (not baking-as my cookies always turn out rock hard), the lake, hanging up new borders around my classroom, running, and challenging myself with new activites such as softball! I dislike the phrase, "I can't." But...I am a big fan of learning from my mistakes, so that I can do things better the next time.
If I am not at home snuggling ALL of my boys, I would rather be in my classroom doing what I love to do most, which is to learn & teach!
I am bursting with exctiement to meet everyone!
