Welcome to our New Assistant Principal at Village Elementary!

Dear Village and Crown Families & Community:

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Tanya White to the Coronado Unified School District as the new Village/Crown Assistant Principal.  It is with great pleasure that I share a little bit about her!

Tanya White is a native of San Diego.  She grew up in East County with 2 sisters and a brother.  She is a mom of three wonderful sons. Ethan is in sixth grade, Elijah is in fourth grade, and Ezra is in Kindergarten.  Tanya enjoys spending time with her entire family.   She loves San Diego and enjoys going to all of the local attractions, such as the beach and zoo.   

Tanya has been a teacher for over 14 years in the Temecula Valley Unified School District.  She has taught both third and fifth grade.  She has served in several roles throughout her time in TVUSD, such as a Title 1 Instructor and a Supplemental Instructional Specialist.  Tanya has been a coach, mentor, and master teacher, supporting both new and veteran teachers alike.  As a member of her district's Common Core Cohort since the adoption of the Common Core State Standards, she helped to develop and write the district assessments, unit planners, and create the shifts in curriculum for third grade, for the entire elementary district consisting of 26 elementary schools. 

Additionally, Tanya also developed and facilitated district-wide staff development workshops.  She provided a multitude of staff trainings and presentations centered around best instructional practices, Webb's Depth of Knowledge, personalized learning, and alignment of current classroom activities to Common Core.  

In closing, Tanya will be an incredible asset to our team as we continue our fast paced journey in teaching and learning, while always doing what is best for our students!
