Hello! Welcome to 4th Grade!!! My name is Mrs. Tavernier (formally Miss Winchester) and this is going to be an exciting year and I’m ready to get to know you all throughout our time together. I am a native to Colorado, born and raised in Colorado Springs. I graduated from Rampart High School. Then got my Associates of Arts from Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs. After getting my associates degree, I transferred to University of Northern Colorado to get my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. This past December, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership through my Alma Mater, University of Northern Colorado! This 2020-2021 school year will be my seventh year teaching, my sixth at RMCA! A little bit about me and my family: this summer my husband and I got a puppy, her name is Winnie! I come from a decent sized family with two brothers and one sister. My oldest brother MJ is married to Lara and they have four kids, Wyatt, Shane, Luke and Heidi. My second oldest brother is Chris. He lives in Denver with his wife Nicole, and their two kids Delaney and Vance. My sister’s name is Tiffany, she lives in Houston working for Veterans Affairs. My parents also live in Colorado! I am looking forward to getting to know your child and your family. I hope that you are all excited for what is to come and ready for a great year with adventure, fun, and lots of learning!
