My name is Tina White.  I have taught 3rd grade in North Carolina, 3rd and 5th grade for the Department of Defense Schools in Okinanwa, Japan, and this will be my 9th year teaching 2nd grade at Ysabel Barnett Elementary School. My husband retired from the United States Marine Corps in January of 2015 and we have 2 children.  Our son has graduated from college and got married in July of 2022.  Our daughter graduated from California State University, Northridge.    I received my Bachelors degree in Social Science from California State University, Sacramento and I completed my Elementary Education courses through the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I also have a Master of Science in Educational Technology from California State University, Fullerton. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and going to the beach. 

 Mission For The Class

My goal is to create a positive, safe, and caring environment.  I will strive to differentiate instruction so that all students can reach their potential and be challenged.  I want to instill a love of learning in all my students and I want them to know that I believe in them!
