Ms. Taracido

Hi! I am Ms. Christi Taracido.  I will be your child’s 2nd grade teacher. I am looking forward to working with you and your child in creating positive and memorable learning experiences this year.

I graduated from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I received my MN license in Elementary Education (1-6) in 2016.  I have had previous experience working in 2nd grade at a charter school in Minneapolis. However, I have lots of experience working with children.  I am extremely excited and honored to be working at Mississippi Creative Arts School.

My teaching style is a “student-centered” learning environment. I like watching them grow and develop! I love hands-on and engaging activities that make the classroom a stress free, positive, and fun place for students to learn. Ultimately my goal is to provide students with what they need to become confident, responsible, respectful and honest. I strive to provide all the support needed to ensure a successful future for my students.

I was born in Nyack, NY and moved to Minnesota when I was little. I grew up in Woodbury, MN, with my twin sister, my little brother, and little sister. I enjoy exercising, spending time with family, and traveling. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 651- 293-8840 or  you can email me at christiana.taracido@spps.org.
