Tam Welcomes New Faculty: Michael Slattery


By Kara Kneafsey

Special Education teacher Michael Slattery has returned to Tam after one year of teaching in Santa Rosa. “I entered into a teaching credential and masters program and so part of that was that I had to get a job last year and it just turned out that I found this job in Santa Rosa that was really great for me. And then at the end of last year I saw an ad here so applied and got the job so I came back,” Slattery said. Although he taught at Tam in the past, this is his first year back and he is excited for the year ahead as well as excited to be back. “It’s been really good to reconnect with all the teachers and everybody that I’ve built relationships with over the years. It’s almost like I never left.”
