• Meet the Teacher

      Hello, wonderful families!

      I am Toni Tasz, I'm so excited to have your child in my school family! Let me share a little bit about myself.

      Background: I am born and raised in Burgettstown, so the Blue Devil pride is strong! I went on to get my bachelor's degree at Geneva College with a minor in reading. Since I'm extremely passionate about reading, I decided to go for my masters in reading as a Reading Specialist. Since I have been a part of the Blue Devil Elementary for nine years!

      Teaching Philosophy: In our classroom, I believe that learning is magical through exploration and fun. I strive to make each lesson engaging and an adventure! It is my goal each year to make your child excited about coming to school, because they can't wait to see what will happen next!

      Interests: Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my children at home and our lovely pets. We love to have "adventure" days. As I have mentioned before, I am extremely passionate about reading! I also love sports. Basketball, softball, and cross country are some of my favorites. I believe that bringing our interests into the classroom helps create a connection with students and fosters a positive and open learning environment.

      Communication: I strongly believe in the partnership between home and school. Clear communication is key to your child's success. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or just to share the exciting moments in your child's life. I am here for you and your child every step of the way.

      Classroom Environment: Our classroom is not just a place for learning; it's a community where every student is encouraged to explore, ask questions, and grow. I am dedicated to creating an inclusive and welcoming space where each child can thrive academically and socially.

      Expectations: I have high expectations for our students, but I also believe in providing the necessary support to help them meet those expectations. Together, as a team, we can help your child achieve their goals and build a foundation for a lifetime of learning.

      I am genuinely excited about the upcoming school year and the opportunity to get to know each student individually. Let's work together to make this a fantastic and memorable academic journey for your child.

      Feel free to contact me at ttasz@burgettstown.k12.pa.us or via the class dojo app.

      Here's to a year filled with magic, adventure, and lots of fun!

      Warm regards,

      Toni Tasz
