Meet Mr. Geer

Dear families,

I am honored and privileged to be a part of the staff of Tampico Elementary School. From teachers to support staff to maintenance, we all strive to do our parts to support a healthy, productive learning environment that fosters strong academic, behavioral, and social and emotional growth.

Tampico Elementary is a safe, student-oriented school. Given our small size, it isn't uncommon for staff to learn most of the entire school students' names. It is this family-like atmosphere that works to set and meet high expectations of students.

We have a wonderful Parent-Teacher Organization, TEA, who meets monthly (check the Orange Calendar for meeting days and times and Facebook for changes). We also welcome parents and family as well as the community in for various events during the year. Our classrooms are open for parents to volunteer in as well; just contact your child's teacher to show interest.

At PLT we believe that Empowered Citizens = Excellent Education, and we cannot do that alone. As the cliché has it, it does take a village to raise a child. At TES, we encourage communication and collaboration between the home and school, and we find it to be vital to each child's success. We look forward to achieving this mission together.

Jim Geer
