Thomas Tapia6th Grade Teacher Resident
My name is Thomas Tapia, this will be my 9th year working at Tate Academy and am very excited to begin my teaching career as a teacher resident working alongside with Ms. Rivera and our 6th grade scholars.
I am the first in my family to attend and graduate from college. I graduated from the California State University at Fullerton with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor in Human Services. Currently I am a student at the University of the Pacific where I will be receiving a Master’s degree in Education.
Growing up I never thought I would enter the education field but soon after graduating from college I started working here at Tate and loved it so much I stuck around for 9 years and now I am pursuing a master’s degree to become a full time teacher.
During my free time I love to attend sporting events, travel, visit art exhibits, and hanging out at the beach.
