Meet the Teacher

I'm Sandy Tarantino and I joined the sixth grade team here at North Windy Ridge School in 2015. I love being on the Buncombe County Schools team!

I started my career in Colorado, where I received my master’s in Curriculum and Instruction and taught in Jefferson County Schools. I moved here in 2001 and joined Buncombe County Schools at W.D. Williams Elementary where I taught fifth grade. I went to Evergreen Community Charter School to be their Information/Learning Technology Facilitator and stayed for four years. In 2008, I received my National Board certification. I then spent three years at home with my two sons. In 2009, I did a year at Francine Delaney in fourth grade and then went to Asheville City Schools to be an Intervention Specialist. I held that position for three years before requesting a return to the classroom in 2013. 
This coming year will be my 20th year in public schools (yikes!). We have a beautiful classroom in a gorgeous school. I can't wait to meet my next group of students and their families!
