Mrs. Tammy Quick
Hello my Name is Tammy Quick and I'm excited to be one of the new teachers here at Martin Luther King Jr Junior High School. I am also new to the East Bay. For the past 19 years I taught LH students in Stanislaus County. I graduated from University of the Pacific, Stockton (Benerd School of Education), I was a Tiger there and I am a Tiger now!!! Also my High School colors were purple and gold, so I knew here is where I'm supposed to be.
One of the highlights of my position here is watching 6th graders become 9th graders. Junior High might seem like a hard time for some, but to me they are ripe for becoming mini adults. I like to see growth in English Language Arts, but even more is the social emotional maturity that we strive for in Middle School. I work closely with your scholar to ensure their emotional well being is cared for as well as their academic growth.
It is my goal to use my knowledge and skills to help scholars and families reach their desired potential. In the past I have been a Middle School girls Baketball coach, and now I am serving as TUPE cordinator of Contra Costa County office of Education here at MLK. That is the Tobacco Use Prevention Education awareness club.
What I Love Most about my job is your childeren! Each day that I enter the classroom and see their faces it makes me feel at home. I want your child to feel that our classroom is a safe place and want to be here as much as I do.
Please watch for my remind to keep abreast with lessons and needs for our room. And....for resources regarding tobacco use and vaping please visit our TUPE page.
