My name is Tammy Steeves. I have lived in a variety of places, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Tucson, and now here, Eugene. My family and I arrived to Eugene in 2011 and have finally found our home. I love to spend time with my family, which includes my husband, Kevin, children, Noah (12) and Madeleine (14), a dog, a cat and 5 chickens. We enjoy hiking, camping, gardening, and biking.
Before I began teaching, I earned my Bachelor’s in English from San Diego State University and my Master’s in Education from National University. I have been teaching primarily at the high school level, with an emphasis in English Language Learners (ELL) over the last 16 years. My goal this year includes preparing students for a successful high school and college academic experience. I love to incorporate real life learning into the Language Arts and Social Studies content material I teach. Any time I have the opportunity to bring in guest speakers, manipulatives, or experiences that enhance the curriculum, I do.
I look forward to teaching a wonderful group of students this year. Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions.
