¡Hola! I am Patricia Tarrant, Assistant Principal at Fred Douglass Elementary. This is my third year as assistant principal. I previously taught five years of bilingual fourth grade and one year of Math intervention. I am from Spain and met my husband (a JISD graduate) when I came to Texas A&M as an exchange student. I have two sons. John, who attends our wonderful Dual Language program here at FD and Charlie, who is 2. I am also the parent/teacher correspondent for our PTO. We are an FD family and love being a part of JISD.
I came to Fred Douglass because I wanted to be a part of their Dual Language and for my personal children to attend it. I am passionate about bilingualism and love how we foster it here at FD. We merge two languages under one big family.
Please contact me if I can ever be of any help to you, your family or your child. We are always here to help you!
