Welcome to Mrs. Piukkula's Kindergarten Website
Hello! My name is Tarah Piukkula and this is my 14th year teaching kindergarten as part of the wonderful Silver Firs Elementary School family. I love working at this fantastic school and adore the precious moments (and challenges) of working with all of the amazing five and six year olds that come through Silver Firs. Each day is always new and exciting!
I graduated from City University of Seattle with a BA in Elementary Education. After teaching for two years, I returned to college and received my Masters degree in curriculum design and instruction and also my Professional Certification. One trait I hope to pass along to all of my students that was instilled in me, a former student of the Everett School District, is to have a love for learning and see yourself as a life-long learner.
Fun Facts: I have a 5 year old daughter named Cataleya. She is named after an orchid. The name reminds my husband and I of Hawaii, which is where we got married. We also have a sweet new member to our family! Cooper is our 4 month old son. His cute little personality is starting to shine through and he's full of giggles, smiles, and has become an expert at rolling over. For fun I enjoy going on outings with my family, taking my daughter to her sporting events and practices, playing with my loving doggy named Lulu (you'll hear lots of stories about her), working in my yard, drinking non-fat mochas and chai tea lattes from Starbucks, spending quality time with my family and friends, eating Mexican food (my favorite!), and watching the Mariners, Seahawks, Huskies and Seattle Sounders with my wonderful husband!Tarah PiukkulaFull Day KindergartenSilver Firs ElementaryRoom C-9Contact Information:
