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.

My name is Kala and I am 23 years old. Teaching and working with children is a passion of mine and has been something I’ve known I wanted to do it from a very young age; fifth grade to be exact. I had the most wonderful teacher who showed me school as well as learning can be fun and I fell in love with education! My goal is to be what my fifth-grade teacher was for me, and that is a difference in the experience of learning and perception of school! I’m looking forward to a great school year and blessed to be able to work with and watch your children blossom! We are grateful to have Kala on our team and look forward to great things.

to Nashville in 1991, then my family and I relocated to Clarksville in 2018. I was
married to my late husband for 28 years. We have five children and a dog. By the

basketball, football, and softball/baseball with my children. We are excited to welcome Ms. Marteen to our TLC team!
