Mrs. Tara Kohls



Hi! My name is Mrs. Kohls and I am going to be your third grade teacher. This will be my 15th year teaching but my second year at Anza Elementary. I love third grade and all the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have!


I have a Master’s degree in Education as well as my National Board Certification. I love reading and writing. And I can’t wait to help you become a better mathematician and expose you to a lot of new math and science adventures!


I grew up in sunny San Diego, CA and last year we moved back to San Diego from Seattle, Washington where we lived for 11 years. I have a wife, Angel and a 4 ½ year old daughter, Lucy. We have one dog (Porter) and one cat (Duncan).

Our house has more energy than a room full of third graders!


I can’t wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you!
