Ahoy, Super Sailor Families!
Welcome to our classhome, you are now "O-FISH-cially" part of the Super Sailor family! My name is Tina Staub and I am honored to be your child's teacher this year. My personal mission statement is, "Everyone is someone's child." I will always strive to meet each child's individual needs to the best of my ability and to love and care for them always.
I earned my BA from the University Of South Carolina with double certifications in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I received my Masters Degree in Reading from Clemson University and have earned the following endorsements from the SC State Department of Education: Gifted and Talented Instruction, Read To Succeed Literacy Teacher, and R2S Endorsement. I continue to take Masters level courses, attend seminars and conferences to stay informed on the latest education instructional trends. Earning a Doctorate of Education is on my "Bucket List"!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Kevin, for 33 wonderful years. We have two sons and two daughters. Ryan lives near Charlotte, NC and has been married for 2 years. He is an corporate Audit Manager for Citi Bank. Ryan's wife, Kaylin, is a teacher also! Our daughter, Evan, is a Human Resources Manager for PepsiCo in Portland, OR. We miss her very much and believe that Oregon is too far away from home! lol Our youngest child, Braden, is a premed student at USC. He is also an SI, Student Instructor at USC. He teaches a math class! Our third child, Sterling, passed away at two months of age from SIDS, but she lives on in our hearts every day. Our family has a 1 1/2 year old Pitt-mix named, Bella. We rescued her from Pawmetto Lifeline when she was 5 months old. My hobbies include interior design, lake activities, reading, and traveling. I am a huge Gamecock fan, and enjoy living on the shoreline of beautiful Lake Murray.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or insights that you may have regarding your child. I welcome your input and know that by working together to support your child's educational endeavors, that we will have a very successful year. Thank you for sharing your child with me, it is indeed an honor!
