4-Year Old Lead

Tamra Garber

Tamra Garber and her family are originally from Texas. She is excited to be the Lead Teacher of 4 year olds.  Although, her education is in business, she found a passion for educating young children after staying home with her three daughters.  She spent three years as a Headstart teacher in Texas where she taught three to five year olds.  Some had special needs, others were ESL (English as a Second Language) and some were quite gifted.  Tamra expressed, “I loved them all equally and celebrated their victories from small to large.  I am so happy to be able to work with your children. I know that you are placing a lot of trust in me during these early, important years in their education.  With your guidance at home, I know we can get each of these precious little ones off to a great start.” She is so happy to be able to work with the students at TLC and we are very grateful to have her on our teaching team!

Brea is originally from Arkansas but moved to TN to be closer to family. She is married and has a cute fluffy cat named Raindrop. She loves working with children of all ages but the younger learners, toddlers and twos have stolen her heart. She is a very hands on, on the child’s level on the floor teacher. She believes children learn best through play and exploring their environment. She also believes learning at this age is loud, messy, and busy. Ms. Brea loves to learn and is always doing trainings and implementing her learnings into the classroom. She is currently enrolled in an infant/toddler specialization course. Ms. Brea is a blessing for us here at TLC!
