Welcome to First Grade! 
Hi, I am Tara Berry. I have been teaching since 2004. I am originally from Pennsylvania. I moved to Georgia in 1999. My hubby and I live in Paulding County. We have 3 spunky children and 2 crazy doggies. In December 2003, I graduated from The State University of West Georgia with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I furthered my education by receiving a Master's Degree, Reading Endorsement Certification, and an Educational Specialist Degree. I presented my research on Literacy through Technology at the both the National Association for the Education of Young Children in Chicago, and the National Reading Association in Atlanta. Every year I strive to improve my teaching.  I want to ensure that your child is given the best educational foundation possible!!!
My goal this year is to make your child excited about coming to school daily!!! I want them to be enthusiastic about sharing their learning experiences with you! I promise to make their learning meaningful and fun. I want each child to feel safe and valued in our classroom. We will work hard but also find time to enjoy the whole process of learning. I strongly believe that it takes a team to educate a child and I welcome your input and concerns always! Please feel free to come visit our class anytime! Thank you in advance for your trust, support and cooperation as we start this terrific year! If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at
