Mr. Cha is switching gears!  Having spent several successful years working with START as a Program Leader (some here at Tahoe) Mr. Cha will begin his teaching career teaching 3rd grade students with us.  Mr. Cha is very active in the Hmong community and is bilingual. We are very excited to have him joining our team in this new capacity.

Hi, I’m Ms. Orosco.  I teach 5th and 6th grades.  I am originally from Santa Rosa, CA, but moved to Sacramento to earn my teaching credential at Sacramento State.  During the time I’ve worked for Sacramento City Unified School District, I’ve taught third through sixth grade.  I love being a teacher because it is fun to help people learn new things. When I’m not at school, I like to bake, read good books, try new restaurants, and watch shows like Project Runway.

I love Tahoe Elementary!  This is my second year at Tahoe as principal and I am learning all about what makes this school so wonderful.  Students, families, and staff here have welcomed me into their “family” and it has been a pleasure participating in such a vibrant school community.
