Hi! My name is Tara Palma.  This is my third year teaching at Aura and I am so excited for another year of fun!  Prior to Aura I taught for 7 years as a Special Education and First Grade teacher.  For 7 years, I also worked with children with Autism. I received my BA in Biology from Rutgers University and have my Masters in Elementary Education from St. Joseph's University.  I took some time off from teaching to take care of my two beautiful boys! I'm so excited to be back in the classroom and look forward to a great school year!

When I'm not teaching I enjoy snuggling and reading with my boys, building Legos with them, and playing Star Wars.  We also enjoy time at the beach playing wiffle ball!
