Mrs. Taryn Stinson
I was born in the city of Odessa, Texas and lived in the West Texas area until 2015 when we moved to Pflugerville, TX. I graduated with high honors from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in 2008. (Go Falcons!)I have a Bachelor of Art's Degree in Child and Family Studies and a minor in History. This is my 9th year of teaching (3 years in Kindergarten, 3 years in 4th grade, 1 year in 5th grade and this is my 2nd year in 2nd grade.).
I have been married to my best friend, Andrew, for 13 years and we have two awesome kids. I have a 4th grader and a 2nd grader that both attend Nadine Johnson. My son is a basketball player and my daughter is a gymnast. My weekends are spent cheering from the sidelines! We have 4 pets at home: Hunny, our Basset Hound, and three fantastic felines named Pumpkin, Percy and Poppy.
My favorite book series is the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling but I'm also a fan of anything Kate DiCamillo writes. I collect owls, Harry Potter memorabilia and my favorite color is teal. I love a good, corny joke and I believe that every child that walks through my door becomes "MY KID" and that it's my job to make them feel loved, safe and cared about.
