Welcome to Pre-K!
My name is Tara Hairrell, and I will be your child’s teacher this year! This will be my 10th year teaching, but will be my first year at Jenks! While I have experience at several elementary and early childhood levels, I truly enjoy and have the most experience at the Pre-K level.
I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from Northeastern State University in 2006 in Elementary Education. I graduated from East Central University with a Master’s degree in School Counseling in December 2012 and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership in December 2014. I am certified in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, Special Education (Mild/Moderate and Severe/Profound), Middle Level/Intermediate Mathematics, and as a School Counselor and Elementary Principal.
My husband, our two kids (Eli, 5 years & Bella, 1 year), and I recently moved to the area from southeastern Oklahoma. We have quickly fallen in love with Jenks and all of the people we meet! For fun, we enjoy going to the movies, being outdoors, and watching and playing sports (we are BIG Chicago Cubs fans!!).
I am looking forward to and am very excited about the 2015-2016 year!!!
