Tara Orstad

I love to teach at West Middle School. I am a Shakopee resident and am truly so excited to be living and working in my community! I have two daughters and I married my high school sweetheart. I love to run and be active. If I'm outside, I'm happy.
I am looking forward to another exciting year teaching 7th Grade Life Science.  In light of our science education, my hope is that students will use their science knowledge to become critically thinking, compassionate, educated young adults in this ever-changing society. The best way to reach me is through email. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
