By the summer of 1999 Tami and her family had driven through the community of Chimacum many times on their way to visit Discovery Bay. Each time the Kitsap County native thought, “What a fantastic place! Wouldn’t it be great to raise the girls here?” That summer opportunity knocked, and the Robocker family came to stay.
With both girls enrolled in Chimacum, Tami quickly became a fixture at the school and in the community. Tami happily participated as a classroom volunteer, helped organize fall carnivals, coached Destination Imagination, worked in the PTA, and teamed with other parents in support of the Chimacum Band Boosters. She started a business in Hadlock that gave her further opportunity to get to know the community and give back to the area she proudly adopted as home.
As time passed, both of her girls walked across the stage at Chimacum High School graduation and went on to successful careers. Tami remained involved with the community, volunteering for such events as the Chimacum Arts & Craft Fair, and connecting with people at her place of business. Tami also remained committed to the success of Chimacum students, teachers, staff, and school board, and when opportunity knocked a second time she was happy for the chance to serve her community as part of the Chimacum School Board. She’s here to listen, provide guidance through policy and planning, support the staff team in building great programs, and work to keep Chimacum Schools a fantastic place to learn, grow, and work.
