Mrs. Laura Hale:
I am very blessed to be teaching
at Nappanee Elementary. It is truly an amazing place where children come first.
I began by teaching art for a couple of years and then transitioned into the
regular classroom. I received my master’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan in
2013. I have taught first, second, and third grades, but for the past few
years I have been teaching third grade, which I love, because it is such an
exciting year for students.
I am passionate about helping each student succeed. I truly understand that each child is unique and learns in his/her own way. I do my personal best to meet the individual needs of each student and help each child feel successful and confident.
I value parent communication and involvement, so please feel free to email me at [email protected], call, or even jot a little note if you have any questions or concerns. Together we can help your child have an exciting and successful year.
Mrs. Carrie Johnson:
I am very excited about being a third grade teacher at Nappanee Elementary! I have taught a variety of grade levels, but third grade has always been one of my favorites. I love to watch the children grow as learners and become more independent.
I graduated from Purdue University with an Elementary teaching degree and a Kindergarten endorsement. I am married to Shawn Johnson and we have two daughters. We live in Nappanee and truly enjoy all the opportunities this community has to offer. We love spending time outdoors and being with our family and friends.
I always appreciate good communication with parents so if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email me at [email protected].
Mrs. Angie Swain:
Hello, my name is Angie Swain. It is my pleasure to teach in such an excellent school as Nappanee Elementary. I graduated with a bachelors and a master's degree from Ball State University and began teaching at Wa-Nee in 1984. I taught second grade for one year and then moved to third grade where I have taught ever since.
My goal each year is to reach the students' learning potential, academically and socially, so that they can achieve excellence. Along with staff and parental support, I hope to provide each child with a positive school experience.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email me at [email protected].
