Degrees and Certifications:
Hello there and welcome to my page. My name is Tanya Rodriguez and I am a Reading Specialist and Interventionist at Northwood Elementary. I have been a proud Northwood Panda for 8 years and have been teaching for 13 years. I earned my Bachelor's in Sociology and an Elementary Education License from Salem College in Winston-Salem, NC.
My adventure as an educator began as a first grade teacher in Winston-Salem. I have also taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade as a Scholastic Read180 teacher in Guilford County. As my love for teaching literacy grew, I knew there was more work to be done, so I decided to return to school. I earned my Masters in Reading from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. I eventually became a Reading Specialist and am blessed to teach children how to become better readers, learners, and humans every day.
I love to travel, run races, and eat all kinds of delicious foods. One day I hope to run a race in another country and indulge on all of the local cuisine. Thank you for visiting my page. Here's to another great year as a Northwood Panda!
