Why wouldn't Tiger's kindergarten teacher be brought into the mix? It only makes sense, right?

A new woman has come forward in the Tiger Woods scandal — his kindergarten teacher … TMZ has learned.

The teacher will respond to an interview Tiger Woods gave for a 2005 book written by Charles Barkley, in which the golfer says, "I became aware of my racial identity on my first day of school, on my first day of kindergarten. A group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray-painted the word 'nigger' on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn't do much of anything."

Enter victim's rights attorney Gloria Allred.

Today at 10:30 AM PT, for the first time ever, the teacher will speak out at a news conference in Gloria's office … and say once and for all whether Tiger's tale is true.

But wait. There's more. The teacher will unveil pictures of Tiger as a kindergartner and also express her feelings about Tiger and his alleged mistresses.


Le grand sigh…
