Meet Tarah

Hello! My name is Tarah Waters and I am a Denver local returning home from over 5 years away. Over the last 5 years I have served in the US Peace Corps, worked as a community and youth development specialist in Maine, and worked as a paraprofessional tutor and after school youth development specialist on the Big Island of Hawaii. During my academic career I worked as a caregiver to toddlers, teacher for 6-8th grade in South Africa, and swim instructor at Virginia Vale Swim Club in Denver. I love working with kids and am passionate about experiential learning. I love being outside more than pretty much anything, enjoy active living, and have a huge passion for the arts.

DO NOT bother to call Tarah. She completely wasted my time stringing me along, committed to a job with me and then was completely non responsive to my communications. Now I'm left high and dry with only two weeks to go before I have to secure care for my children. She is dishonest and unethical.
