Welcome to a new and exciting year at Hains Elementary!
My name is Mrs. Tanginikki McKenzie. I am the wife of Willie McKenzie and the mother of three wonderful children; Isaiah, Dylan, and Madison. I enjoy reading, dancing, and traveling with my family.
I am so elated to have the opportunity to work with the students in the areas of ELA and Math. My goal is to accommodate the needs and learning styles of every child in order to increase their lexile and quantile scores in the areas of ELA and Math.
I look forward to collaborating with you and your child's teacher to ensure that your child has a successful school year. I realize that students are successful in school when there is a shared effort or partnership between the teachers and the parents. We are both stakeholders in your child's education, and I want you to know that I take my job of educating your child very seriously.
Cheers to a successful year!
