Mrs. Tristin - ESL and RTI

Hello!  My name is Tristin Rector. I have been teaching in the Oneida Special School District since 2009.  I have taught one year of 6th-grade reading and social studies, five years of Pre-K, and 6 years of first grade.  This will be my second year providing ESL services for English Language Learners in our district as well as assisting with reading intervention in the elementary school.  
I am a 2004 graduate of Oneida High School.  I received my bachelor's degree from Tennessee Tech University, early childhood endorsement from Middle Tennessee State University, and my master's in education as a reading and writing specialist from the University of the Cumberlands. I completed my ESL endorsement through Tennessee Tech earlier this year.  As an educator, I strive to stay on top of current best practices so that I may be as effective as I can for my students.  I love to learn and I want them to love to learn as well!
When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband, Seth, and our kids.  I am a mom of 4, stepmom to 2, and I love watching my kids in all of their sports and activities!  My husband and I also enjoy traveling when we have the time.
