• New Hope Elementary teacher named Innovation in Teaching winner ...



    I am Tara Perryman.  I am originally from Chicago, Illinois.  This is my seventh year at New Hope Elementary.  I love it here!  


    I earned my Bachelors in Dance and Elementary Eduation from the University of Iowa, Go Hawks!  I taught dance for seven years before heading back into the classroom.  Since then, I have completed my Masters in Elementary Education and my Specialist in Teacher Leadership.  I am thrilled to teach creative movement!


    In my spare time I like to run and read books.  I also enjoy spending time with my amazing three year old daughter.  


    My favortie part about being a teacher is making meaningful relationships with students.  I treat each child as if they were my own.  I love and celebrate them for who they are.


    Thank you for stopping by!
