Tamara Attard


Position at Lafayette Elementary: Kindergarten

Educational Background:

I earned my B.S. from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI in Communication Disorders and Sciences and M.A. from Marygrove College in Elementary Education.


I taught Kindergarten in Michigan for 10 years. After moving to Colorado in 2007, I have taught Kinder, 1st and 2nd grades over the past 13 years.

Hobbies & personal interests:

I enjoy hiking, traveling, running, podcasts, reading, gardening and Broadway musicals (too much).

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

I love watching little minds light up with excitement when they learn something new, or discover that they can do things on their own.
