I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Tanai Floyd and I am your child's Introduction to Technology and Engineering / Princinples of Manufacturing teacher this year. This is my seventh year as an educator. I've taught for two years as an Aldine ISD Career and Technology educator, as well as, four years teaching high school math abroad in Abu Dhabi. I love teaching and I'm constantly looking for new ways to challenge the students. I have so many ideas for my students this year. I just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself and share with you my expectations as well as my excitement for this upcoming school year.
Please know that I understand the importance of preparing our students for the rigors of college. It is my goal to provide engaging instruction that challenges critical thinking skills, fosters intelligent discussion, and nurture innovation. I have very high expectations and standards that I will express clearly to each student, and I am absolutely committed to providing my students with the best education of their lives. I also believe that communication with parents is crucial to a successful year, and that honest communication can head off issues before they develop. Know that I am here with an open mind and a willingness to listen to any concerns that might arise throughout the semester. Below is my school email address, as well as the school number.
Please take a moment to review and complete the parent form for each student
