    Hello! My name is Tessa Winiarski. I am a second and third-grade teacher at Cedaroak Park Primary. I am originally from Maui, Hawaii. I received a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Oregon and a Masters in Teaching through Marylhurst University and the Arbor Center for Teaching.  Prior to joining the Cedaroak community, I spent two joyous years teaching a blended classroom at a small independent school in Tualatin. I deeply value creativity in all subjects, hands-on experiences, student inquiry, social/emotional learning, and having a growth mindset. Along with my passion for teaching, I have a great love of nature, art, dance, and travel.  I am so grateful to be welcomed into the community here at Cedaroak and am filled with excitement for the rich years of learning ahead.
