Mrs. Tanya Peter

Hello! This is my 4th year as a Behavior Specialist and BCBA at Tilden Elementary Center and my 13th year in education.  

All my years in education have been spent in various special education teaching positions. Before coming to Hamburg, I taught in the Tulpehocken Area SD as a K-6 emotional support teacher as well as Springfield City SD in Ohio as a 7th/8th grade learning support teacher. I graduated in May 2019 with my Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in June 2021. I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education K-4 as well as Special Education K-8. I am currently in the process of taking courses and working on my internship hours in order to obtain my PK-12 principal certificate through Slippery Rock University. 

In my free time I enjoy reading, working outside, spending time with friends and family, and snowmobiling. My favorite destination so far has been Vermont as the views were breathtaking! Everyone that knows me, knows that I am absolutely obsessed with owls and leopard print. 

It is going to be a great 2022-2023 school year. Please feel free to reach out to me via phone or email; I look forward to working with you this year!
