Mrs. Stacey Rodarte
1st Grade Teacher
Who am I? I am a wife, mom, daughter, friend and teacher. I’ve been married for 20 years and have 3 awesome sons. I grew up in Lake Tahoe and in Auburn and have lived in Truckee for 20 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends hiking, playing at the lake, paddle boarding, and playing all sorts of sports.
My passion for teaching: As a little girl, I would line up my dolls and stuffed animals and read and sing to them. I would mimic my extraordinary teachers and their way with their students. I get energized by helping young minds discover new things, articulate their thoughts, and generate new ideas. When I’m able to provide an opportunity where my students can make sense of the real world, I feel successful. Getting to be a part of someone’s life changing experience of learning everyday, feels like magic. I love what I do and feel blessed to get to fulfill my passion daily.
My teaching career: In high school and college, I tutored young kids and taught preschool. A few years after our first son was born, I started teaching full time for Washoe County in Incline and Sparks. In 2013, I hit the “jackpot” and got a job working for TTUSD and have taught at both Glenshire Elementary and Truckee Elementary. I have taught 1st through 4th grades. My goals are to ensure students have a safe, compassionate and consistent place to come to everyday, where they can connect their academic learning to the world around them.
