Dear Families,Welcome to Lincoln Elementary! As the principal, I feel very lucky to call Lincoln my second home. We have a wonderful staff that always puts students first, we have supportive families, and we have a great group of students. We truly are a school family.I am so excited to begin my second year at Lincoln. Prior to becoming an administrator, I taught in the School City of Hobart for 13 years. All my life I wanted to work with children and help them grow and learn. I spent many days as a young child playing school. I, of course, was always the teacher. Through my years of teaching, I have taught preschool, a second/third multiage class, first grade, and both half-day and full-day kindergarten. One of my favorite parts of teaching was continually revising the curriculum in order to meet the students' needs. I love that every year is a fresh start, and no day is ever the same as the day before. The world of education is never boring!I grew up in Crown Point, where I also currently live with my husband and two daughters. I graduated from Crown Point High School. I attended Purdue University Calumet and received an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Development and a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, with a Kindergarten Endorsement. I also hold a Master's Degree in Educational Administration.I want the very best for the Lincoln students. I believe that all children can achieve success with appropriate support - and should always feel successful as they learn and grow. Education is a group effort between the school and home, and communication is essential. Please let me know how I can help you at any time. You may contact me at 374-3602, or contact me at email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I look forward to hearing from you.Sincerely,Mrs. Melissa WalleyPrincipal, Lincoln Elementary
