Hello, Holbrook Huskies!

My name is Tara Best and I am honored to be a part of this wonderful community.  This will be my second year as the Principal of Hannah Holbrook Elementary.

About me: I have been married for 27 years. My husband Tim is the Healthy Lifestyles Director for Davis School District. We have three grown children. Aiyana (27), Dakotah (24), and Kaya (21). We were recently blessed with becoming Grandparents as well! My family has always placed a great deal of importance on education. I have a love of learning new things and am excited to share that love of learning with Holbrook!

Educational Journey:  I began my career teaching Kindergarten. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades, as well as one year as a 1st grade PAL teacher (Primary Advanced Learners). While working as an English Language Arts Coordinator, I learned much about early literacy and best practices for reading and writing. For the last three years, I have been an Assistant Principal at Meadowbrook Elementary and Doxey Elementary.

Educational Philosophy: I believe that all children can learn and grow, and with the right resources and mindset, they can truly excel! I hope to provide your children the best environment, resources, and attitude to help them become the best they can be!

I am looking forward to meeting you all. Let’s work together to have a wonderful and memorable year of learning!
