About Me

Mrs. R
Welcome to my 7th grade English Language Arts class! I am so excited to be your teacher for this school year! My very favorite content area is English Language Arts, with Social Studies as a very close second. I am a Graduate of Education from East Carolina University. I am licensed in Elementary Education for grades K-6, Reading for grades K-12, English Language Arts for grades 6-9 and Social Studies for grades 6-9. I am so excited about teaching ELA at Norwayne Middle School because this is the school that my own children attended but also because this school teaches the children and future leaders of my community. 
            Speaking of children, my husband; Jimmy and I have two kids. My daughter is 18 and a Senior at Charles B. Aycock High School and my son 15 and ninth grader, also at CBA. Jimmy and I are originally from Long Island, New York. Actually, so are our kids but they can’t remember it at all since we moved to North Carolina when they were babies. Our family has one other very important member: our adorable shih-poo; Gizmo! In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, cooking, traveling and cross-fit.

The best way to contact me is by email; tararodriguez@wcps.org. Please always remember that class time is meant for learning. In most cases, I will respond to your email within 24 hours.
You may also call me at (919) 242-3414 ext. 3632. Again, please keep in mind that when I have students or I am in a meeting, you will need to leave a message in my voicemail.
