Mrs. Tarah Gilbert
Hi! My name is Mrs. Gilbert and I am so excited to be your kindergarten teacher this year. It’s going to be a fun year full of learning, creating, and exploring; and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us! I want to know ALL about you, but first, I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I grew up in Northern California and am the oldest sibling. I have two sisters and one brother. After I graduated high school, I went to Chico State for two years before transferring to San Diego State. It was there that I received my B.A. and Masters Degree in Education. GO AZTECS! I loved San Diego so much that I decided to make Southern California my permanent home.
I am married to Mr. Gilbert and we have two amazing and spunky children. My daughter loves soccer and hopes to be a neonatal nurse when she grows up. She will be in 7th grade this year! My son loves playing baseball and will be a fifth grader at Summit Academy this school year. They are so much fun and always keep me on my toes! We also have a rescue dog named Gunner. The kids call him “Puppy Gunner”, even though he’s about seventy pounds and almost fourteen years old! Gunner snores really loudly and does a ton of cool tricks.
This will be my 17th year teaching elementary school. I have previously taught third grade, fourth grade, and kindergarten with the Vista Unified School District. I also taught third grade at Tony Tobin for the last eight years. This year I cannot be more thrilled to be going back to kindergarten at Summit! We are going to have an AMAZING year together!!!
