Hello, my name is Tara Lengacher. I am very excited about being your child’s teacher this year! My husband’s name is Ryan and I have 5 children; Tyra 20, Tanner 17, Trey 15, Tia 14, and Rylan 3 years old. I am a 1996 graduate of Loogootee Jr./Sr. High School. I graduated in May of 2000 from Oakland City University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Reading minor, and 7-9 Social Studies endorsement. I then received my Master's Degree in Education in 2007 from Olivet University. In May of 2010, I received a certificate of completion from Purdue University for Reading Recovery. This will be my 17th year of teaching at Loogootee and I am just as excited as I was my first.
