Mrs. Tamara S. Whitmire
Hello Shepard Patriots! This year will be my 17th year here at Shepard. I grew up in Dallas, Texas. I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a BA in English and a minor in Education. My husband Dan and I have been married for 36 years, we love to travel and play golf. We have 3 daughters, Amanda Fastle, Victoria, and Lauren. Our son in law is Andrew Fastle and we have one adventurous two year old grandson, Aiden. We have two dogs, Elsie is a 3 year old yellow lab and we kept one of her puppies last year, Scout, who is a 1 year old black lab. I have a class pet turtle, Tortuga, who is at least 7 years old. In my spare time I love to hike, read, and spend time with family and friends. I absolutely love teaching and am truly passionate about children learning and developing into the best that they can be.
"Happiness is seeing the smile on a child's face as they learn."
