Tara Osinski is excited to be joining the World Community this year as a Middle School Teacher! Mrs. Osinski has previously taught sixth and seventh grade science, reading, and writing. Tara has served her school communities as a member of the Building Leadership Team, Family Connections Committee, Founder and Faculty Advisor to Student Voice, and Assistant Cross Country Coach. Through the American Federation of Teachers’ Leader Program, she conducted and presented action research on the impact of curriculum and associated instructional practices on student engagement, academic achievement, and school climate. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor’s in History and from Rivier University with a Masters in Education. She is also an adjunct instructor at the Virtual Learning Academy Charter School in Exeter. She is certified K-8 and enjoys Highly Qualified Teacher status in multiple subject areas.
Tara is a Nashua native who lives in the community with her husband and sons. When she is not in the classroom she enjoys outdoor adventuring of all kinds, including skiing, hiking, camping, and biking with her family. She is always ready to learn something new! It is this passion for adventure and knowledge that drove her to become an educator. She believes inspiring students to explore, to take a risk and to fall in love with knowledge is one of the greatest gifts teachers can provide for their students. Her energy, enthusiasm, patience, compassion, and love for learning, along with the interests of her students, set the tone for the classroom!
Mrs. Osinski’s educational philosophy strongly centers around the importance of inquiry-based learning and evidence-driven analytical thinking. Tara builds a curiosity focused, student centered environment that challenges her students to think critically and creatively, solve problems, ask original questions, and understand the application of their learning to their present and future lives. She uses diverse instructional strategies to reach all learners and to create excitement and connections to the curriculum. She deeply values the importance of student voice in her classroom and develops meaningful, supportive relationships with each of her students, encouraging them to flourish. Welcome, Tara!
