Tara Zelvy

6-8th Grade Education Specialist

Hello! My name is Tara Zelvy, and I'm excited to start my 21st year of teaching, joining LVS. The bulk of these years has been spent with middle schoolers, the best group if you ask me. I have a masters degree in reading/writing curriculum and instruction, and a minor in math. These will come in handy as I support reading and math instruction for grades 6-8 this year.
When I'm not teaching, I'm usually hanging out with my family; my sons (Asher and Evan) are both in middle school too. I enjoy being outdoors-bike riding or playing tennis with my husband, watching Evan play soccer or Asher at a swim meet. However, I also like to curl up with a good book and my lazy dog, Winnie.
