Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tamara Soderstrom
Hello! My name is Mrs. Tamara Soderstrom, and I am so excited to be a 2nd-grade teacher at Stetson Elementary School! I’ve had experience working with all elementary grade levels, but have spent the most time in Kindergarten-3rd grade. Teaching brings me such joy, and I love watching kids grow in their excitement about learning!
I graduated with my bachelor's degree from the University of Northern Colorado. I started by pursuing a degree in nursing, but then changed courses to become a teacher - a choice that I am so grateful I made! I believe that learning never stops, and I am eager to continue to grow as an educator and to help my students learn to become lifelong learners.
I moved to Colorado Springs about two years ago after growing up in Greeley, Colorado. My now-husband, Luke, and I met weeks after I moved to the Springs, and we recently got married! I love enjoying quiet mornings at home, checking out coffee shops, and taking walks and hikes around the area. I also have taken up a recent hobby of crocheting to fill up my spare time!
Thank you for entrusting me with the opportunity to teach your child and to partner with you in their education! I am excited to get to know your family and make the most of this school year.
