Please welcome Tania Turcios! Ms. Turcios is the Family Liaison for Sanford Elementary and the Hawks Nest. Tania was born in Honduras and now resides here in Montevideo. She lives with her siblings and mother. Tania says "There is always something crazy and unexpected going on at my house, but I love it!" What she loves most about being a Thunder Hawk is being able to come back to the community that she grew up in and help those who need it. Tania enjoys spending time with family and friends when she's not working. Her "Why" for being in education is to help the new generations find their place in the world or at least be able to offer some support towards their growth. We are excited to have you, Tania, and hope you have a great first year!
