    Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindergarten!!!
    I am so happy to be here at Springfield with a great class of young learners! This is my 13th year of teaching Kindergarten. I have also taught at Joy and Knapp.
    My greatest joy as a teacher is helping our students learn how to read. I absolutely love seeing these little minds grow so much over 1 year! We will be working hard this year in reaching our reading goal, writing goal, and math goals! When these kindergartners leave, they will be able to read, write stories, add, subtract, and so much more!
    Let the fun begin! :-)

    Hello!! My name is Melissa Wise. I have been teaching for 13 years in Michigan City. I graduated from Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana. I live in New Carlisle with my husband, Ryan, and our 2 kiddos, Jayce and Rayah. Jayce is 5 and Rayah is 2. We enjoy playing outside, going on trips, and hanging out with our extended family as much as possible!
    Being in Kindergarten, I do my best to incorporate as much movement and hands-on learning as possible. I like to encourage my students to learn how to work independently, and take responsibility for their learning. We are very "center"-oriented, doing reading centers in the morning, and math centers in the afternoon.
    I truly enjoy teaching Kindergarten, and can't imagine spending my time doing anything else. Kids are my passion, and helping them reach their highest potential is my goal!
