Tammy Christensen

Hi, my name is Tammy Christensen.  I received my bachelor of science degree from Saint Cloud State in special education, with a license to teach students in kindergarten through 12th grade with specific learning disabilities and developmental cognitive delays.  I have been working in the Sauk Centre School District since January of 1991.  I worked in the elementary for the first 15 years.  There, I enjoyed working with students on various aspects of their education, especially my passion, reading!  In 2006 the school district transferred me to the 10-12 secondary building.  At the high school level, there is an emphasis on looking toward the future.  I work closely with the students on transition.  My objective at this level is to help students understand that they can reach their highest potential in life and be productive citizens in society, no matter what challenges they may face!

I am currently in my 29th year of teaching special education and 17th year teaching grades 7-9 in Sauk Centre. I previously taught in Litchfield, Intermediate School District 917 and Long Prairie-Grey Eagle school districts. I earned my undergraduate degree in elementary education from Moorhead State University and my special education license from The University of MN - Minneapolis. I grew up in Osakis, MN and currently live in Osakis with my husband, Tony, and have 3 daughters, 1 son, 1 son-in-law and 2 grandsons. In the summer I manage the Osakis Country Club, which makes for a busy summer. In my free time, I enjoy attending country music concerts, going for runs and walks, attending sporting events, golfing, and spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy teaching because the students are great, and I enjoy helping them be successful in school and in life.
