Welcome to Tuckahoe's web page and thank you for visiting. "Children are always the only future the human race has; teach them well." As a thirty-two year career educator, I take great pride in using this quotation as a guiding principle. Serving and leading a dynamic group of teachers who have made a conscientious decision to positively affect the lives of children is an exciting and challenging job filled with incredible responsibilities and satisfying rewards. It is my belief that all children can learn, and however differently, it is our job as educators to teach them in an environment that maintains high expectations. Tuckahoe's staff is committed to helping each child develop his or her full potential. Our instructional program emphasizes "hands-on" and "minds-on" learning. With family and community support, it is our goal to extend to students a safe, secure, and supporting environment. We also expect all children to show respect for themselves and others and to accept responsibility while protecting their rights as well as the rights of others. As we embrace the 21st century, tradition meshes with technology to provide our students with a strong and excellent foundation of academic achievement.
