Welcome to 5th Grade!
Hello! Welcome to my 5th grade classroom. I am looking forward to
working with your child this year. I have many exciting activities
planned for this year. If you want an idea of what we will be doing
this year, be sure to check out the rest of the website, especially
the class pictures.
I attended Clinton Central (both elementary and high school) in Michigantown. After I
graduated from high school, I enrolled at Ball State University. I
earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with
endorsements in Special Education MiMH (mildly mentally handicapped) and Computers. In 2001, I went
back to Indiana Wesleyan to work on my Masters of Education. I
earned my Masters of Education in the winter of 2002. During the
2008-2009, I went through training to become a mentor to new
teachers. I am looking forward to helping new teachers as they begin
their adventure in education.
My husband, Mike, and I live
about 25 minutes south of Logansport. In November 2011, we welcomed twins
into our family. The twins, a boy and a girl, are doing well. My
husband and I are excited to have them with us. We also have three pets: George &
Sam (the cats) and Quinn (the dog). We spend as much time with our
family as we can.
I have taught for
Logansport Community School Corporation for
years, and I am very excited about starting my 15th year with this
corporation. I taught at Fairview Elementary and Columbia Elementary
my first year of teaching. I have been at
Landis Elementary since
1999. From the fall of 1998 to the spring of 2002, I taught the
3rd-5th grade Cross Categorical Classroom. During the 2002-2003
school year, I taught 3rd grade. I transferred to 2nd grade in the
fall of 2003, which I taught for three years. When I was given the
opportunity in 2006 to move to 5th grade, I jumped at the chance! I
will be beginning my seventh year in fifth grade during the
2012-2013 school year, and I still love it!
I am on the Landis
School Wide Improvement team. I had been on this committee
since 2002. I
am a member of the Logansport Technology Committee (2007-present)
and the Landis Technology Committee (2007-present). I was also a
member of the Logansport Literacy Committee (2008-2010).
Again, welcome to my 5th grade classroom. Be sure to check out
the other web pages on this website. I have included links to my
homework policy and
behavior policy. I also have a
calendar that is
updated monthly with important dates. If you ever have any
questions or concerns, please be sure to contact me. My contact
information is listed below.
