Mrs. Tenaglia

Goetz is a great middle school! This is my 20th year teaching sixth grade in the Literacy Dept. I enjoy helping students improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills. I hope that I can make this an enjoyable year of learning for my students! Parents, if you ever need to contact me, you can jot a note in the Planner, or send an email to ctenaglia@jacksonsd.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
