Hello! My name is Emily Tawater, and I am SO very lucky to be a 3rd grade teacher at Lost Pines Elementary. This is my 5th year teaching, and my 15th year working with BISD. Prior to being in a classroom, I coordinated our after school tutoring programs. I live in Bastrop with my husband and our two children. Our daughter is three years old, and our son is five. He joined our LPE family this year as a kindergartner!
I love teaching, and couldn't imagine spending my days doing anything else! I believe children learn best when they feel respected and safe, so my classroom atmosphere always supports that. I encourage parents to be part of our classroom family by liking our Facebook page, Mrs. Tawater's Class. We post photos, important events, and reminders.
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to email or call me.
