Austin Saddlemire

Dean of Instruction


I’m Mr. Saddlemire and I support our school, as the Dean of Instruction. I’m excited to work with all members of our Tate family to grow, learn, and take risks. My personal goal this year is to be organized and to do my work ahead of time. I can’t wait to hear what goals you have for yourself and your classes this year.

I was born, raised, and went to college in New York. After college I moved to Oakland, California where I taught for 7 years. I’m enthusiastic to start my third year here at Tate.

When I’m not working in school, I enjoy reading, running, and cooking. My favorite book I read this summer was The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. I’m always looking for new books to read, so let me know your suggestions!
