Meet The Teacher
Hi! My name is Mrs. Tapper and I am so happy to be a part of the AWESOME Kindergarten team here at Gale! More importantly, I am thrilled to be your kindergarten teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures! I want to know all about you but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in Galesburg, Illinois. I have a younger sister. In high school I was on the swim team and was involved with many clubs. When I graduated high school, I went to the University of Iowa (Go HAWKS!) where I majored in elementary Education and couldn’t wait to start teaching in my own classroom! I also continued taking classes and received my Masters Degree in education.
This will be my 15th year of teaching in the Galesburg School District. I taught kindergarten at Silas for one year and then moved to Gale where I taught first grade. I missed kindergarten sooo much that I asked to move back when there was a kindergarten opening at Gale.
I am married to a wonderful man, Mr. Tapper. He loves to play golf! I also have two great kids. Kylie is 11 years old and loves to swim, read and hang out with friends. Ryan is 9 years old and takes after his daddy with his love of golf. He also likes to play soccer and ride his bike. As a family we love to take walks, watch movies and play board games together.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. If you need to contact me I can be reached before or after school at 973-2011. You can also email me at email@example.com. Also be sure to check out our class website at www.mrstappergale.weebly.com. Working together I know that we can create a positive learning environment for your child.
