Tara Nelson - Asst. Principal

While I enjoy the sunshine and freedom of summer, I am bursting with excitement to begin this school year!

I am a native Idahoan, born and raised in Coeur d’Alene. I began my educational career in 2015 and have taught middle and high school English Language Arts, been a Student Council Advisor, and functioned as an Instructional Coach and Content Specialist for the district. I most recently served as the secondary principal for summer school. 

I am honored to join the Woodland team as the Assistant Principal. I look forward to  partnering with teachers, students, and families to foster a safe and supportive learning environment and to inspire a love of learning in our students.
