Minette Nodhturft

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  I am so happy to have everyone back to school.  I have truly missed the interaction with my students. Let me introduce myself.  I am Minette Nodhturft, your Intensive Language Arts Teacher.  I have been teaching here at Tate for the past seven years, and I am an alumni of Tate High School. I have lived in Pensacola all of my life.  I am married with two children, a boy 27 years old, and a girl 22 years old. I am a pet lover and I currently have three four-legged children living in my home - Blue-nose Pit, Black Lab/Greyhound mix and a full blooded Bloodhound. 

Teaching is my second career and I absolutely love my job.  I thoroughly enjoy coming to work every day. I enjoy my students most of all.  The entire purpose of Intensive Language Arts is to improve your reading skills and help you to meet your graduation status.  At this point in your high school career, you will not receive a diploma without passing the FSA, ACT, or the SAT.  We will be working very hard to help you master the skills needed to pass these tests.  You can NOT fail my class, if you put forth any effort at all. 

I look forward to our year together and I know you can be successful in whatever you chose.  Keep thinking positive thoughts and rise to your potential!
