Mrs. Taralee Wightman

Hey all! I am Taralee Wightman. I grew up right here in Pearland, but moved to Utah to go to college at Brigham Young University where I completed a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education (K-6th) and a minor in Teaching English Language Learners. I graduated in 2018, and taught for a few years before moving back to Pearland. I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter and I am so happy to be here working in PISD! 

I love integrating different forms of art into my teaching, as well as giving students a really hands-on, real life experience in school. I love to travel and have been out of the country a few times, including when I lived in Russia for about a year and a half (yes I do speak Russian). I am always open to hearing about new experiences, cultures, and ideas!

You can meet with me on Teams Tuesday or Thursday from 8:45-9:00 if you have any questions or concerns! If that time does not work out for you, please contact me at and we can set up a time that would work better!
