About Me

Hello, my name is Ms. Tilghman.  I have been a teacher and have worked at Pacoima Charter School since 2005.  I have my bachelor's degree in liberal studies and my multiple subject credentials, both earned from California State University, Northridge.  I also have my master’s degree in educational administration and leadership and I am certified to teach transitional kindergarten.  I have worked in the Pacoima community since 2000.  I was a reading tutor at Maclay Middle School, from 2000 to 2002, through CSUN's Education Equity office.  I transferred to Pacoima Elementary School in 2002.  I worked as a reading tutor until I became a teacher in 2005.    I taught regular kindergarten for 11 years, transitional kindergarten for 5 years and worked in preschool for two years. I love working in the field of early education. I find my job very rewarding and fun. 
My Favorite Quotes (all by Dr. Seuss):
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It"s not."
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
"Don't cry because it's over.  Smile because it happened."
"Today you are you!  That is truer than true!  There is no one alive who is you-er than you!"
