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.
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.
Mr. Cha is switching gears! Having spent several successful

joining our team in this new capacity.
