Tara McGaw

Grade 5-2 Home Room English

I have the privilege of being the 5-2 homeroom teacher. I am honored to teach most of their core subjects and to also spend time in 5-1 teaching their English Language Arts. My favorite classes to teach are Religion and Language Arts. This is my fifth year teaching at EMTS. Our family lived in the U.S. for 14 years and I have previously taught in Maine, Massachusetts and in New Brunswick. I spend most of my free time with my family: my husband, 2 kids on their own path to adulthood. We love to hike, play board games, watch funny movies, visit our family in New Brunswick and laugh at family inside jokes. I am an avid New England Patriots fan and Montreal Canadiens fan- living in the spots I have might explain those allegiances! You may not know I am an identical twin and although we are across the country from each other we are in constant contact! I strive to live by one of my favorite scriptures, Romans 8:28 "And we know all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purposes". I strive to live my life according to His purposes and let that shape my days and leave the rest to His planning and care. What a blessed environment to teach at in EMTS.
