Here I am with my familiy visiting Fort Sumter where the Civil War began. 
 
I am Mrs. Tara Albrecht, and I appreciate you taking the time to visit my website! This is my ninth year teaching within the Whitewater Unified School District, and I still get excited for the first day of school! :)

I received my bachelors degree in Education 1-8, with a second major in English Literature, from UW-Whitewater. My college experience was wonderful and gave me an opportunity to become part of the community here. When a posting opened for a LA position, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to come back to such a supportive and wonderful community. 

In Language Arts, our goal will be to learn and practice literacy skills necessary to be successful in school and in life. We will look at reading strategies and skills, focus on developing strong writing skills and spend a good amount of time reading and learning from various novels and literary works. I love talking about books, and I can’t wait to see what my students have to say about some of the works we will be reading this year!

In Social Studies, our goal will be to use a variety of sources to help us understand the important historical events that shaped our country in its early stages. Students can expect to spend much of our time together discussing, collaborating, creating and even writing about American history!

This website is an easy way for students and families to access information. Please feel free to check back throughout the year for updates.
