Hello!

My name is Tiffany Vandre-Lothe.  Many people call me Tiff for short.  This is my ffith year teaching at Marcy (sixth if you include my year of student teaching in 107 with the awesome Andrea Parrish). I'm very excited to welcome a new group of first graders to 106 this year! 

Teaching peace and social justice is extremely important to me.  Marcy's strong emphasis on these things creates a very peaceful, comfortable environment for all students school-wide.  The students here are truly going to grow up to become amazingly intelligent and productive citizens!  I'm glad I get to be a part of it!

I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education from The University of Minnesota, and will be finishing my Masters in Elementary Education from The University of Minnesota this spring.  I'm originally from Stevens Point, Wisconsin where I still visit family and friends many times a year.  In my free time I enjoy camping, traveling, live music, reading, watching the Green Bay Packers, and cooking.  One of my favorite recipes to make is Eggplant & Italian Sausage Lasagna. 

My hope and dream for the school year is to create an environment where all students thrive, both socially and academically, and push each other to do their best at school.  I strive to foster a classroom community that is comfortable and fun for all students.

Please keep in touch with me throughout the year!  The best way to reach me is by email as I check it multiple times a day, but I'm also available by phone.  I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with the new students of 106 this year!

Peace and Love,
Tiffany
