Hello families! My name is Mrs. Tatro. I am a kindergarten teacher at Canterbury Elementary. I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in child psychology and my teaching certification. I started my teaching career here in 2001 as a kindergarten teacher and then moved on to teach first grade for several years. During that time, I also received a master’s degree in special education from Southern Connecticut State University. I eventually found myself back in a kindergarten classroom. Kindergarten is a magical grade! My favorite subjects to teach are phonics and reading. My goal as a kindergarten teacher is to provide a safe place for my students to feel comfortable and nurtured, so they will all grow to love learning. My interests outside of school are spending time with my family, cuddling with my puppies, working out, and taking long motorcycle rides.
