Mrs. Tina Yarbrough
Hi! My name is Tina Yarbrough, and I'm thrilled to be your child's third grade teacher this year! This is my 9th year teaching in District 308, and my 2nd year in third grade. I graduated from Elmhurst College in February 2005 with my bachelors in education with endorsements in reading, social sciences, and language arts. I started my teaching career in 2007 as a reading teacher here in District 308 after the youngest of my three boys started preschool. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in the 2nd Grade, because of my absolutely amazing teacher. I have worked as a camp counselor, day care provider, and teacher’s assistant during my college years because of my love of working with children. My experiences in these positions only verified for me (over and over again) how much I wanted/needed to teach!
In closing, my goal for this year is to help your child reach theirs. ;)
