    Welcome To Our Class
     
     Dear Parents/Guardians: 
     
    It is an honor to have your child in my classroom. First grade is a very exciting time and there is so much to learn. I will be sending home a weekly newsletter on Mondays, which will inform you what our class will be learning that week.
     
    This school year we are starting off the school year in an unprecedented way, virtual learning. This will be a new experience for each and every one of us. Please remember to give yourself, your child and me grace as we begin our journey with virtual learning. There will be some issues that may arise but I will always do my best to get them corrected as quickly as possible. If ever your child begins to have troubles with anything please feel free to reach out to me right away and I will do my best to help or answer any questions you may have.
     
    Again, it is an honor to have your child in my classroom. We are going to have a great year of learning. If you have any concerns or questions about the classroom or anything special you would like me to know about your child, please feel free to contact me one of the following ways: 
     
    Phone: (219) 873-2114 ext. 6871
    Email: awallen01@mcas.k12.in.us
     
    Dedicated to your child's education,
    Mrs. Amanda Wallen
     
  • Meet the Teacher
     
     Hi! I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little about me. This is my 6th year at Pine Elementary but have taught in Michigan City Area Schools for many years. I have taught kindergarten and first grades. I am passionate about what I do and am filled with joy to see children develop a love of learning. Outside of school I am a mom/step-mom of four beautiful children (3 girls and 1 boy). In my spare time I like to read, travel, play any kind of game, enjoy nature and spend time with family and friends.
