• Welcome to Our Class
     
           Hello!!  Thank you for stopping by our class website!  We are already off to a great start to this school year!  Third grade is such a fascinating stage, in my opinion.  The students are still young and need fun, hands-on activities, movement, and nurturing, yet, they are also capable of so much in-depth learning and responsibility.  I just love 3rd grade and assure you we will work towards satisfying all of these needs throughout our daily learning.  
    Welcome Back, Coolspring!  
     
     
            
     
         
  • Meet the Teacher
     
        My name is Abby Vittatoe.  I graduated from Purdue University North Central in May of 2015 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a Minor in Psychology.  
     
       This is my fourth year teaching third grade at Coolspring Elementary School.  Ironically, I went to Coolspring as a child from Kindergarten through 6th grade and have always dreamed of teaching 3rd grade!
     
        In addition to an educator, I am a mother of 4 children.  All of my children attend Michigan City Area Schools; two in High School, two here at Coolspring Elementary School.   I enjoy sports and coaching.  I coach Varsity cheerleading for MCHS.  Busy? Yes.  But experienced with children and producing results? Even more- yes.  
     
        As an Early Childhood educator, I appreciate the uniqueness in young learners and love teaching in the ways that they learn.  A quote that I love is, "Teachers that love to teach, teach children to love to learn."
