We are taking enrollments for 2021-2022 school year for ETK-5th Grades.

Welcome to Third Grade ! Mrs. Tabachnick's Class of 21st Century Learners!

21st Century Learners are students obtaining a broad set of knowledge and skills.  These skills are comprised of collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem solving.
In our classroom we have a culture of kindness, respect and a quest for knowledge.
We also sing, dance, and have fun!
A little about me.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from UCLA
and a Master of Education Degree, also from UCLA   -GO BRUINS!!!
I have been teaching awhile. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and even 6th in my many years with LAUSD.
Recently, I even had a child of one of my former students in my class!!!
3rd grade is my home, however, and I have been enjoying teaching it for over 15 years!
I enjoy my student's love of learning and enthusiasm to encompass new and exciting ways to prepare for success in our changing world.
