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!
