Welcome to First Grade at Tarwater Elementary School! My name is Amy Shoot and I am so excited to get to know your family. A little about me; I have lived in Michigan, California and Arizona. I love to spend time with my 2 grown sons, my husband and my 2 rescue dogs. I hope to make this year a fun and exciting one!

My Education and Professional Background

I received my AA in Early Childhood Education from Mira Costa Community College in California. After teaching preschool for 2 years, I obtained my BA in Liberal Studies (teaching emphasis) from San Diego State University and my Elementary Teaching Credential from California State University, San Marcos. I have earned a Reading Specialist, Media Specialist & Structured English Immersion (SEI) endorsements. I have experience teaching Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade and 5th grade. Most recently, I have been a Media/Reading Specialist for 6 years.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe every child is unique, loveable and capable of success! I believe a classroom should be a warm and welcoming environment where students feel safe and loved. I hope to inspire and encourage my students to learn and grow. I can't wait to go on this educational journey with your child!
