About the Teacher

My name is Taya Combs, and I am your child's Third grade teacher. I am very excited to have your child in my classroom this year. We are going to have an awesome time traveling through the academic standards and soaring through exemplary work. This year we will be implementing the new Common Core State Standards. Third grade is a testing grading. This means that we will be taking the Standardized State Test. We have alot of information to learn this year, so I am asking that all my parents be willing to work at home as much as possible with your child, as I work at school. 

This year is the beginning of my 7th year teaching. Last year I taught Second grade at Dawson Elementary. This year I am honored to teach the Third Grade. Also, last year I recieved that great honor or representing my school, Dawson Elementary, as their 2011-2012 Teacher of the Year! In my class, you child will be moving around, dancing, learning, laughing, exploring, soaring to new heights, and bloosoming into a productive citizen. I love to have fun! It shows in my classroom. I will be using several learning strategies and techniques to engage every child.

I have an open line of communication with all my parents. I like to email, call, and conference with everyone of my parents. I want you to know that I care about you and your child's needs. I am here whenever you need me. You can contact me through email at combs.taya@muscogee.k12.ga.us or the school number which is (706) 683-8732. If you need to contact me for anything please feel free to call or. 

I am again, very excited and honored that you and your child will be apart of my classroom. I know this year will rock so let's start the journey!
