First Grade Teacher

My name is Chantel Jones. I attended Murray State University.  I began teaching in 2010. I’ve taught first grade the whole time. When I was in second grade and moved to a new school in the middle of the year, the teacher was so patient and awesome. She had such a fun class and she taught me how to write in cursive. I like how we do fun things in our class that I can say in the hallway and they know exactly what to do. Our classroom climate rocks!

Karen Lagan
Lagan, Karen
First Grade Teacher

My name is Karen Lagan. I attended Austin Peay State University. I began teaching in 1993.  I have taught academics in kindergarten through second, and fifth/sixth split.  I love working with children and I wanted to be with my own children throughout their education. My husband and my own children inspired me to become a teacher. I love seeing their eyes light up when they accomplish a goal such as reading a book for the first time or solving a problem. I also love it when they accidently say “mom” instead of Mrs. Lagan, this really feels my heart. If you are comfortable enough to call someone mom, you feel loved.

My name is Katherine Sheffield.  I attended University of Tennessee. I started teaching in Louisiana in 1984. I started teaching in the second grade.

I really love being able to interact with the children with ease. I want them to know, without telling them, that I care a lot about them.

Amber Wallace
Wallace, Amber
Art Teacher

My name is Amber Wallace. I attended Austin Peay State University. This is my very first year of teaching!  I teach Pre-K through fifth grade art.  I became a teacher so that I could introduce kids to the world of art and show them that everyone has something to contribute when it comes to vision and creativity, regardless of perceived “ability”. I like getting to know each student and their personalities. Teaching these kids about art and how to use art to express themselves help them to reveal little bits of who they are. Each kid is so special and unique and getting to know them all has been so much fun!
