Mrs. Tafoya

Welcome to Room 16!  I am thrilled to teach our 5th graders this year. Here is a little bit about myself.

 My name is Jannette Tafoya.  I love to attend concerts, read, and eat at awesome restaurants.  I have a son named Liam.  Maxwell Academy has been my home school since 2005.

We consistently learn though our International Baccalaureate Units of Inquiry.  

 In this class, I use Class Dojo to track student behavior.  It is a great way for parents to see student behavioral progress every single day!
