Miss Tara Brandenburg


My name is Tara Brandenburg and this is my 11th 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 18th 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 three adorable fur babies; Fritz, my 12-year-old Yorkie, Sherlock, my 1 1/2 year old Yorkie mix rescue and Belle, my 8 month old Corgi/Dachshund 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. My favorite book of all time is Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.
