Degrees and Certifications:
Dear 7th Grade Families and students,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Elizabeth Middle school. My name is Yacina Tamendjari. I will be teaching your child's 7th grade math class . I am very excited to start my first school year at Elizabeth School District . I will work with you to ensure that your child has a fun and successful year.
I have a Master degree in Economics. I taught students from preschool age to Highschool for 6 years, and a French teacher at Yak Academy for one year. My last 5 academic years, I was a full time substitute teacher at STEM School Highlands Ranch, where I was a math exploration teacher for middle school classes.
I have two daughters Sarah in 8th grade and Lily in 5th grade. My family is a very important part of my life. My favorite activities outside of teaching are camping, hiking, and Cooking. I like spending time with friends and family.
7th grade is very fun and filled with many opportunities and responsibilities. I work hard creating a safe and challenging environment for each of my students. I ask for you support with homework, organization, and building safe classroom community. A large focus in 7th grade is to help your child prepare for high school;therefore you may find that I may have high expectations for my students both academically and behaviorally!
You and your child are welcome to email me anytime to discuss your academic or social needs, or ask me questions. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you and your child!
