Special Education 5th-7th Grades

Tamaque Ator

"Everything you need to know about me..." 

I was born and raised in White Hall and graduated from North Greene High School in 1988. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Illinois College in 1992. In 2009, I went back to college and got my Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Elementary Education, followed by my Masters of Science Degree in Special Education. I previously taught K-6th grade Special Education in Waverly School District.

I currently live in Waverly with my husband and 2 boys, who are in 7th and 5th grade at Waverly Elementary School. We spend our free time attending the boys' baseball and football games, camping at Pine Lakes in Pittsfield, and traveling to new destinations for our vacations. 

I have successfully survived the first week of school and I am LOVING meeting all of my new students! I have such a great group of kiddos and I can't wait to dig into the curriculum with them. We will be reading some fun novels together and working on projects that expand on the learning opportunities in them. Social Studies for 5th graders will include learning about the history of America, from Colonial Days until the Civil War. My 6th grade Social Studies students will be learning about world history, including Egypt and early civilizations. In Math, the students will be continuing their learning process in the Touch Math program, with a lot of hands-on activities and projects. For Science, my kiddos will work together to learn new aspects of the scientific process and discover fascinating facts and information about Earth. 

I am so excited to be a part of the Winchester School District team! I look forward to working with your kiddos and learning with them! Please feel free to email or call me if you have any concerns or questions about your child.
