Mrs. Tamra Nowak- 4th grade ELAR & SS

Hi, my name is Tamra Nowak, pronounced {No-Walk}. I will be teaching ELAR and SS this year at Chavez! I was born and raised in the DFW area, moved to College Station in 2012 where I met my now husband, Taylor. In 2016, my husband and I moved to Katy, TX, where I finished my teaching degree and began my career. While there, I taught 3rd grade for two years before we decided to move back home and start a family. In October 2020, our daughter Blayne was born. This past year has been amazing learning and growing as a family of 3. I love to spend time with my family and friends, I enjoy staying active, being outdoors and traveling to new places. I am beyond excited to be joining not only LEISD, but also the Chavez FamiLE. I am looking forward to a new adventure and exciting school year!
