As adults, we love hearing praise and it is true if someone gives you a
compliment, it can lift your spirits and help you know you are headed in the
right direction. Think back to the last time you had a new haircut or new
outfit and how good you felt when someone noticed and recognized you for
it. Kids need to know when they did something right and not just what
needs to get better. Take a moment this month to praise what you want to                  CLASS PARTIES

                                                      children. The wonderful thing about these programs is that you

Tari Teague Receives PTA Lifetime Membership Award

Polly Tadlock Elementary PTA is honoring Mrs. Tari Teague with the PTA Lifetime Membership
Award for the 2010-2011 school year. Mrs. Teague has been teaching school for 21 years. She has
a Bachelors Degree from Cal State Fullerton and a Masters Degree from Grand Canyon University.
She taught for 8 years in California, 8 years in Washington state, and 2 years in Georgia. This is her
3rd year teaching second grade at Tadlock. Tari has been married for 27 years and is the proud
mother of 5 sons. She also has one granddaughter and a grandson due in March. Her goal each
year is to instill the love of learning into each and every student that passes through her door, and she
does this without exception.

 Mrs. Teague has made an enormous impact on our school. She volunteers for nearly every after-
school event including Science Night, Chili Throwdown, Sock Hop, D.E.A.R. Night, and many more.
Her students are so excited to see her each and every time. She has so much love to give, always
offering hugs and kind words to her current students and former students alike. She treats them as if
they were her own. The general theme with Mrs. Teague is that she makes learning fun. Ask any of
her students why they love her, and they all say, "She makes learning fun; you don't even know you
are working."

 Her classroom is always filled with exciting activities, from games to dancing and singing. She
listens to her students, asks them questions about themselves, and makes them laugh. She makes
every child feel special and loved by her. Parents love her because she makes it a priority to discern
each child's learning style and teach them accordingly. She is an excellent communicator, always
keeping parents informed and openly discussing any concerns she might have. Every student that
passes through Mrs. Teague's door is excited and happy to be at school. She will be a teacher that
every student remembers as one who truly impacted them. We are sincerely blessed to have her as
a teacher at Tadlock Elementary!
