Teaching Associate ~ Literacy & Humanities
Tara is thrilled to be part of the Voyagers’ vision and staff! Monmouth County is her home and she is excited to assist her community full-circle, especially in the context of learning. Tara currently holds a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Linguistics from Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J. She will be receiving her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, specifically in poetry, at Sierra Nevada College’s low residency program in Incline Village, Nevada in January, 2017.
She is a lover of all things words and considers herself a thinker and a professional learner above all else. Tara is just beginning her educator’s journey and not only hopes to be a part of the Voyagers’ family for years to come, but also has goals of becoming a college professor. Her passion and creative nature are just a few of the attributes she feels will be a great addition to the learning experience of the students. Tara is beyond excited to learn from her fellow talented colleagues and grow alongside the students in their journey through self-discovery and education.
When not studying, reading, or writing, Tara can be found enjoying the local boardwalks, music/writing scenes, and experiencing all the Jersey Shore has to offer. She is an avid fan of video games, animation, and comic books and believes in the power of all three to empower student learning. Tara loves cats, hiking, Fall, and is known to create her own cosplays for conventions. Her favorite type of sushi is a sweet potato roll.
