Hello! My name is Tara and I am currently teaching high school math. I enjoy softball, rowing, listening to Taylor Swift, and reading- I try to incorporate these into my teaching whenever I can! My favorite formula is the quadratic formula- I am always excited to talk about its applicability and intricacies! My mantra is: "Math is fun! I can do math. I will do math."
