My name is Tara Cox and I will be teaching second grade ELA this year at Grand Lake School. I have a total of 21 years of experience in grades first, second, and third. I live in the community with my husband Thomas and two daughters Zoe, 12, and Ella, 11. I am so thankful to be teaching where I can be with my children and people who I know and love. This is a wonderful small community with supportive members and a great school with a very devoted faculty. I have always wanted to be a teacher. Both of my parents were teachers. It’s in my blood and I couldn’t be happier at any other place!
