Meet Our New ELD Teacher
My name is Tania Flores Segundo. I am the eldest of 4 and I was the first person in my family to graduate from a university. I was born and raised in a rural town in Nayarit Mexico for the first 12 years of my life. My family immigrated from Mexico to chase the American dream. I have been living in Tillamook County ever since. I started to learn English in 7th grade and became fluent by the 12th grade. I became a teen parent at 17 years old, and graduated through the teen parent program. Today I am a proud mother of an 11-year-old son who is amazing and my number one motivation to continue to be the best version of myself.
I decided to become a teacher because my teachers encouraged me to push myself to be more, to chase my dreams and with diligence and perseverance I was able to accomplish many of my goals. My dream to become a teacher was fueled by knowing the power that teachers have in helping students like me. Initially, I wanted to become a high school teacher because that is where I have struggled the most in life and when I needed someone the most, but I obtained my first teaching job four years ago at Liberty Elementary in a kinder/first grade Dual Language class, and I loved it. I loved teaching my young kids the power of becoming biliterate and the value it has. This year I have obtained a master’s in education. I did it because I wanted to have more knowledge about effective ways to teach and improve my skills as an educator with the goal to become a leader in my school community. This year I am achieving my dream of working with teenagers, and I am very excited to work with them because I know the positive impact teachers have on their students. I want my students to see me and think, I can too achieve my dreams. I want to be there for my students as someone they can count on and I look forward to the experience and the connections I will make with them at the high school.

I have been profoundly impacted by the way this community comes together during difficult times. As I watch fire crews and our public utility department working tirelessly to save homes, property and restore power, I am reminded of how we make it through the most challenging times we face: You put one foot in front of the other and you start doing something. You don’t complain and worry, you make small efforts in productive directions and invite others to join in your efforts. This is how I feel as we move forward this school year and we are not making excuses or sitting back to see what will happens we’re pushing forward. Our teachers have also been working diligently to prepare high quality engaging instruction during comprehensive distance instruction. We are focused and ready to take care of what is most important, our students. Our focus is to serve your children, if there is anything we can do to enhance this experience for your child please reach out and let us know.
Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year. Even though things look different our goal here at T.H.S has not changed. Our teachers are working hard to provide you with quality learning opportunities to help you become successful as you continue your educational journey. The staff and I are excited to connect with you virtually and are overly excited to connect in person as we work through these difficult times. We will play again! The athletic department looks forward to the return of extracurricular activities in the near future.
Stay safe and see you soon.
