Ms. Tara Lochner


Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year and welcome to my math class! This is my 17th year in education, my 8th year teaching 7th grade mathematics and 4th year at Riverwood Middle School. I am a graduate of North Carolina Central University with a major in Middle Grades Education. I am a native of Texas (but raised in Raleigh) and a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan! :) I have one daughter of my own that graduated high school in 2020 and now works full time at Amazon. I am also a proud dog mom to a 4 year old yorkipoo named Penelope. When I am not busy, I like to shop, scrapbook, work Sudoku puzzles, and I am a HUGE movie buff! 


My commitment as an educator is to provide you with a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure your academic success! I am overjoyed to have you in my class and I look forward to sharing an exhilarating school year with you!!
