My name is Tanya Belden.  I am an Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) teacher and an  Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) teacher at South Ridge School. This is my first year  at South Ridge! Prior to coming to South Ridge, I worked in the Carlton school district and at  Summit School in Duluth. 

 I received my undergraduate degree from St. Cloud State University and grew up in this area.  My husband and I moved to Duluth a year ago and are happy to be making a home here! I look  forward to growing my experience in education here at South Ridge.

 Outside of school, my personal hobbies include hiking, exploring, cooking, reading, and spending time with my husband and our dog, Albus. I am excited to get to know the South Ridge families and share my love of learning with the children I get to work with!
