Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tara Pearson

It is a true delight to be part of the Pinckney family.  I am a product of the Lawrence Public Schools and received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. After teaching for several years, I discovered my love for teaching reading and headed back to school to complete a Masters Degree in Teaching and Leadership with a certification as a Reading Specialist from the University of Kansas.  In a quest to better reach all of my students, I completed my ESL endorsement from Emporia State University.  

Over the years, I have taught in the classroom and as a Reading Specialist instilling in students a love for literacy.  I am excited to continue working with students who need an extra boost in reading at Pinckney.  I look forward to seeing you!
