Welcome to my website!

     Hello, my name is Tammy Woolgar and I am excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year at Northern Potter High School! While this is my sixth year here, I would like to take this opportunity to share a little about myself for those of you I have yet to meet.

     My husband, Jim, and I have been married for nearly twenty-four years and we have two daughters, Jacilee and Jenna. During their childhood, I worked part time as a hairdresser, volunteered in their classrooms, and led Girl Scout troops. In working with children, I decided to return to school as a non-traditional student to pursue my teaching certificate. 

     After finishing my B.A. at Mansfield University in 2011, I worked as a substitute teacher in the Southern Tioga School District and co-taught in a pre-school classroom near my home in Corning, NY. I came to Northern Potter in November 2012 as a long term substitute teacher, and immediately felt like part of the NoPo family. Needless to say, I was thrilled when the high school learning support position became permanent! In 2015, I obtained my third teaching certificate, English 7-12, and started a new position within the district as both an English and special education teacher. In the Spring 2018 semester, I completed my M.S. in Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology through the University at Albany. 

    Though I have quite a haul each day, the rewards I receive in working at Northern Potter make my travels worth while. I feel fortunate to work in a small district where we are truly able to focus on individuality. This site was designed to provide some basic information for students and parents, and I hope that it will be helpful to all of you. If at any point during the year you have any questions and/or concerns, please contact me. I will do my best to make arrangements to speak with you as soon as possible. I believe that communication between home and school builds a partnership that aids in student success!
