Mrs. Tarah Gilbert
Hi! My name is Mrs. Gilbert and I am so excited to be your 3rd grade 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 blue-eyed little girl's name is Hadley. She is eight and currently believes that she is going to be a neonatal nurse when she grows up. She will be attending TTES as a third grader this year! My handsome little man, Branson, will be seven this October and will be a first grader at TTES this school year. He currently loves baseball, chocolate milk, and wants to be a sheriff when he grows up. 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 eighty pounds and nine years old! Gunner snores really loud and does a ton of cool tricks.
This will be my 14th year teaching elementary school. I previously taught third grade, fourth grade, and kindergarten with the Vista Unified School District. This will be my fifth year teaching 3rd grade at Tony Tobin, and I cannot be more thrilled! We are going to have an AMAZING year together!!!
