My name is Tasha Wood and I am so blessed to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my eighth year teaching and on staff here at Harding Academy. I have a B.A. in Elementary Education from The University of Memphis. When I’m not busy lesson planning you can find me enjoying time with my family; my husband, Ricky, my son Noah and my daughter Hannah, "Pinterest-ing", playing co-ed kickball, shopping, and cheering on the Dallas Cowboys, Memphis Tigers and Grizzlies!
I anticipate a very busy and enriching year with your child. While all subjects and skills will be taught, you can expect an increased emphasis on reading, writing, and math. You will be amazed at the progress you see throughout the school year. I have high expectations for all of my students, and hope that you will encourage your student at home by reading with them each and every night! I highly encourage parental involvement, as it enhances your students’ educational experience and keeps you well-informed to the goings-on in our classroom. I hope that many of you have the opportunity to visit our classroom during the school year so you can see our curriculum in action! I have attached my Teaching Philosophy at the bottom of this page for you to read and learn more about me as a teacher.
Please feel free to contact me any time. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (901) 767-4063. We're going to have a GREAT year!
Mrs. Tasha Wood
