Hello! My name is Tess! My true passion is teaching. I love working with children and helping them learn and grow. My love for teaching began spending time in my dad’s classroom growing up. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication and a minor in Speech and Language Pathology. I also have a Master’s in Education and recently completed my teaching credential courses with National University. I have 5 years’ experience working in public schools with children age pre-k to 6th grade. It is a privilege to be a part of a child’s development. In my free time, I love to be with my family, my nephew, and my puppy Mila. I love visiting Avila Beach and taking long walks outdoors. I am excited to join the Growing Brilliant Team!
