     Team Pol - 3rd Grade 

  • My name is Mrs. Alayna Pol (sounds like pole) and I am very excited to be a new 3rd grade teacher at Pine Elementary School.  Although I have experience teaching Prek, Kindergarten, 1st, and 4th grades, I am a new teacher to Michigan City Area Schools.  I earned my BS degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University and my MS in Language Education from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.  I believe students thrive when parents and teachers work together to develop the best learning experience in the classroom and at home.  This year will require everyone (parents, student, and teachers) to work closely with one another to develop and monitor the learning experiences taking place virtually. I know this year will bring unique challenges, but I do believe we will have a great year despite the obstacles if we work together and stay positive.
