Hello, I am Tia Vahling. I am so excited to be teaching Fifth Grade this school year! I received my Masters Degree in Elementary Education and began my teaching career at Prairie Hills Elementary in 2009. Most of my time spent teaching has been at Prairie Hills in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. It is my passion to create and foster life long learners. Not only do I get to teach at this wonderful school, but I also fill the roles of a proud Meadowlark parent and involved community member. I love Prairie Hills and I am honored to spend each day here with our amazing student body and staff.
On a personal note, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and two daughters in my free time. When I'm not at school you can most likely find me in my car shuttling my daughters to and from dance or at a dance competition. I also enjoy drinking Starbucks, reading the latest release, cooking (not baking!), hiking in our beautiful state, and gardening.
