Mrs. Tandi Liess

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Liess! I am proud to call myself a third-generation Redlands native. I attended Smiley Elementary, Cope Junior High School, and RHS. I graduated from the University of Redlands with a degree in Business/Marketing. After eleven years in the banking industry, I decided it was time for a change and went back to school. I received my teaching credential from the University of Redlands and began teaching in 1999. This year I begin my 23rd year at Mariposa. I am a wife and a mom with two awesome grown-up kids. I have a son who resides in Boise, Idaho and a daughter in Redlands. Besides my family, my three favorite things are watching college football, gardening, and traveling on road trips.

I look forward to the upcoming 2023 - 2024 school year filled with endless possibilities and opportunities for growth. As scholars, students will strive to be curious, innovative, and successful by using critical thinking skills and the Depth and Complexity Icons. 

I am thrilled to have each of you as part of our scholar community, and I cannot wait to embark on this exciting academic journey together.
