Tamara Krauch graduated Magna Cum Laude in Art Education and earned Summa Cum Laude for her Masters in Post-Secondary Education from Salisbury University. She has been teaching Visual Art at Pocomoke Middle School for six years.

With a passion for building relationships, Tamara mentors at-risk students and is an after-school sponsor.
