This is my 24th year teaching at Indian Lane. Indian Lane is a fantastic school! My daughter, my nephews and my niece all went to school here! First grade is a fabulous year to teach because the children are naturally curious, have a love of learning and are enthusiastic. They are learning to be independent and responsible. My goal is to inspire my students to learn and challenge them to reach their full potential, take risks, share ideas, acquire knowledge and develop thinking skills.
