Hi! My name is Tammy Evans. I am a California native and grew up in Santa Cruz. I moved to Redwood City when I got married and have been a resident of this great place for over 25 years!
I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and an Education Specialist teaching credential from San Jose State University. I started my professional career in high tech and then took a break to raise my family. As a parent in the Redwood City School District, I volunteered in my children's classrooms a lot and was the main docent for Art in Action for many years. During this time, I realized that I loved to be around kids and teaching. I began my teaching career as a preschool teacher, taught locally for a number of years, and received my Early Childhood Certificate at Canada College. While a preschool teacher, I was able to guide and help a lot of students that were just being diagnosed with a special need.
I feel very blessed to work and live in Redwood City. The staff and colleagues here are very supportive and collaborative.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, sewing, knitting or crochet, swimming, hiking, gardening, and spending time with my family and pets.
