I'm Ms. Tiede. This is my first year at Pine Elementary. I have taught for over 20 years, if you count preschool. I graduated from Purdue University with a Master's degree in Instructional Technology. I also have a gifted license from Ball State. I am a life-long learner and continue to take classes and enroll in professional development opportuniites. This summer, I participated in a week long MakerSpace conference that was awesome. I also took a compuer science class from IndianaComputes! I have been learning how to code using Scratch. It is a beginning program language that I am excited to share with my class.
I live in Demotte, Indiana with my puppy, Stormy. I have a very big yard and spend my summers gardening and mowing my lawn! For fun, I love to be outside in nature. I go to state parks and other recreation areas to hike and kayak.
I am passionate about teaching and finding ways to engage my students. My goal is to find out about my students and develop their strengths and help them become life long learners. I am so excited to be here!
