Miss Tina

Introducing Miss Tina and Miss Ali coming to you from Scott Magnet Dual Language Preschool!


Hello everyone!  My name is Tina Auten but at Scott Magnet School I am known as Miss Tina.  I have been here for nine years and feel like it is my home!  I received my Bachelor’s of Early Childhood Education degree from Washburn University in 2003, a Master’s of Educational Administration in 2010, and I just completed an English as a Second Language Endorsement through Kansas State University.   I have worked with children since 1999 when I worked as an infant teacher at TDC Learning Centers Inc.  While at Scott Magnet School I helped start the Dual Language program.  I truly believe that it is so very important to introduce a second language at this young age when children can soak it up like a sponge!

Personally, I am the mother of one child, Alex, who attends school at Scott as well.  I have been married for 15 years to my husband, Shawn.  I enjoy taking lots of pictures of all the things my son does so that I can scrapbook his life.  I also have been enjoying reading books on my Nook.
