• Welcome back to the 2022-23 school year, Knapp friends + family!

    I am thrilled to be at Knapp and collaborate with staff, family, students, and community members.  With the many talents throughout our Knapp family, I strongly believe that our students will continue to receive the best education possible; helping to prepare them for college/the workplace and life. 

    I was not only born and raised in Michigan City, but also a Michigan City Area Schools alumna.  I know the importance of continuing to develop our children into future leaders.  As an educator for over 14 years, I have been able to see how education has shifted to support the diverse learning needs of our students.  At Knapp, we are data-driven, reflective, and responsive. Our goal is for each student to leave us feeling confident and proud of all that they learned while with us. We are without a doubt proud of what we've accomplished academically, but nothing is possible without strong positive relationships with our students. The Positive Behavior Systems we have in place, in addition to Crew creates a sense of purpose and belonging for all students.

    We appreciate the support and dedication of our families. Last year, we resumed with in-person events. This year, we look forward to offering even more.


    We've got this!
