Hello, I am Amy Stearley. After 27 years of teaching primary students, I can still say that every year I learn a little more: More about presenting information to children in a way that they can best understand and more about how to make learning an exciting experience for them. I guess that is why I feel it is so important to teach children to be life-long learners, because I am still learning, even at the age of 52. Not only do I learn from my students, but my own two kids also teach me so much every day.
I have two children, Eric and Taylor. Eric graduated from Indiana University l with a degree in Journalism and is not the editor for The Paper of Wabash. Taylor is in her 4th semester at IU studying Nursing in Indianapolis. They have been the joys of my life, my biggest challenge, and my biggest fans!
It is my goal to provide my students with the highest quality education possible so that they will be prepared to face each future educational transition with the tools, knowledge, and confidence necessary for success. I want to make learning fun and exciting for them so that they will enthusiastically embrace each learning opportunity that comes their way. When children leave my room, it is my hope that they take with them a solid foundation of academics and an eagerness to build upon that foundation.
