Teacher Of The Year Spotlight: Tara Nedrow, Social Studies, High School

Social studies teacher Tara Nedrow has been named one of three 2022-2023 Teachers of the Year at the High School.

“I grew up in Oklahoma and graduated from Union Public Schools,” Nedrow said. “I moved to Colorado after high school for college and lived there for almost 16 years before returning to Tulsa. I am teaching in Oklahoma because I believe teachers have a direct impact on the future and I want to be a part of making this world and this state a better place.”

Nedrow said, “My favorite classroom activity is any opportunity for the students to discuss ideas with each other. I want my students to feel comfortable sharing their thoughts on the past and be able to analyze history with confidence.:

Nedrow started teaching in 2008 in Colorado Springs and then moved to Tulsa and started teaching at Union in 2015.

Education background:

  • Union High School, 1999
  • University of Colorado at Colorado Springs – bachelor’s degree in geography and environmental studies, 2006
  • University of Phoenix, Master’s Degree in secondary education, 2008

--------------

The District Teacher of the Year will be announced on Tuesday, February 21. Being named Teacher of the Year is one of the highest honors a teacher can receive at Union.
