A colleague had this to say about Tammy:
“Ms. Bird is an outstanding educator who is always going above and beyond for her students. She is a caring professional who works tirelessly to make sure that the students are ready for the world when they leave her classroom and the Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology Pathway. She is inspiring. She has extensive knowledge of science subject matter and encourages the children to learn more about environmental science through the schools garden and several out the classroom excursions including a trip to the Teton Mountain Range in Wyoming an exploratory educational experience that exposes children some who have never been further than downtown LA.”
