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.
