Mrs. Tapiero

Hello! I'm Mrs. Tapiero and I'm so excited to be here in First grade this year!  I graduated from Texas State University in 2012 and have been teaching ever since!  This marks my seventh year in education and my second year teaching First grade here at Howard Norman.  Before coming to Hutto ISD I taught Pre-k, First, and Fourth grade in Killeen, Texas.

My husband and I have two St. Bernards and two giant cats. We are big animal lovers!  I love going hiking, swimming in the river and pretty much anything else you can do outside.  I'm also learning to love exercise so I've been going to Camp Gladiator a few times a week and do my best to make it to the gym as well.  My husband and I enjoy playing new board games and exploring Austin and all it has to offer.  The two of us do our best to take every opportunity to take a trip somewhere.  Over the summer we were fortunate to visit Alaska and some of Canada.  It was BEAUTIFUL!! 


Some of my favorite things:

  • ​For the classroom: TeachersPayTeachers gift cards, Wet Wipes, Tissues, and Volunteers!
  • Restaurants: Olive Garden, Chick-Fil-A, Pluckers, Jason's Deli
  • Bad-day Fixers: Family time, time with my dog, sunflower seeds
