Miss Tara Brandenburg


My name is Tara Brandenburg and this is my tenth year as your librarian at Boggess Elementary. Before I was a librarian, I taught in the classroom and have experience teaching Kindergarten, 2nd Grade and 4th Grade. This year marks my seventeenth year working in education in the state of Texas. I am very excited to see all the students back this year and my goal is to assist all students in becoming lifelong readers.

On a personal note, I have two adorable fur babies; Fritz, my 11-year-old Yorkie, and Sherlock, my Yorkie mix rescue puppy. I love to travel and have been to ten different countries, including Hong Kong, where I taught at an English camp for one month. I also love to read (of course), paint and practice martial arts in my free time.
