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. I look forward to working together with the Lincoln families and students. Please let me know how I can help you at any time. You may contact me at 374-3600, ext 3631. I look forward to hearing from you.Sincerely,Melissa WalleyAssistant Principal, Lincoln Elementary
