Meet Tera Rescorla

Mrs. Tera Rescorla moved here from McKinney, Texas.  She taught 5th grade
math last year in Aubrey, Texas.  After receiving her degree in health sciences and 15 years of
practicing chiropractic, she chose to follow her love of education and become a teacher.  Tera came to
Alturas because the teaching philosophy encompasses why she got into teaching.  She believes that all
students deserve to be taught according to how they learn as well as to communicate their
thoughts and ideas without being afraid of making mistakes.  She strives for her students to become
independent thinkers and self directed learners.
Tera has been married to her husband for 30 years and has 2 children,
Christian (13) and Mila (10).  She loves spending time with her family going fishing, hiking and
camping.  She also enjoys yoga, gardening and coffee!
