Mrs. Tara Haggerty

I have been an Academic Support teacher at Tenafly High School since 1995 and am currently on the 12th grade and transition teams. Before coming to Tenafly, I taught at a private school for behaviorally and emotionally disabled children. I received my BS in Special Education and my MS in Learning Disabilities, both from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania (Go Huskies!!!). My goal is to help all students learn to the best of their potential while promoting independence and advocacy skills. 
My advice...take advantage of all life has to offer and live it to the fullest!

  • CONTACTING THE TEACHER (for parents of seniors):
    Please understand that as part of the transition process and because your child is a senior, I will be communicating a great deal directly with your child. Once your child graduates, their college/employer/etc. will go directly to them to handle any situation (positive or negative) that arises. One of our goals this year is to help your child learn how to deal with these situations. BUT, don’t worry! I will still be communicating with you, just “behind the scenes.” As always, please don't hesitate to contact me should you have a question or concern to discuss.
