Mrs. Tara Rossi

Welcome to First Grade. I am so excited to be on this wonderful journey with you! This is an important time in your child's life as he or she really expands their abilities and works to become an independent and confident learner.  My classroom is one in which students are motivated to learn and respecting each other's thoughts and opinions is a must.  In our room, learning is fun and different abilities are respected so that all students' needs are met.  



*I started my career in Baldwin as a student teacher and then worked as a permanent substitute teacher. 

*This is my 22nd year teaching first grade at Brookside School.

*I love reading, bike riding, butterflies, the beach, and spending time with my family.
