    Catherine Spalding, Pre-K Teacher

    My name is Catherine Spalding. I have 16 years of teaching experience. My experience includes 11 years in the same Academy in Zionsville. While in this Academy, I was the Pre-K lead teacher for 8 years. I initiated a summer reading program for children who were struggling with this subject. This program was very well received, and I was asked to continue the program for an additional 3 years. While I was teaching, I attended the Art Institute of Indianapolis and earned a certificate in Digital Design. Additionally, I worked as a freelance fine art photographer and photography instructor. Upon graduation, I started a fine art and Digital Design Business. In addition to teaching, I have also been a part-time Front Office Coordinator for F.C. Tucker in Zionsville for 6 years. On a personal note, I enjoy traveling, visiting art galleries, vegetarian cooking, reading and time spent in nature. I very much enjoy having fun with family and friends. Additionally, I value my time spent volunteering at animal shelters. I love to be a teacher and I am very excited for this new school year.

    Mrs. LaVonna, Infants Teacher

    Some may say the best qualifications begin at home. While raising three of my own children 14, 11, and 5 I feel I am at a greater advantage when it comes to interacting with children. I was given this opportunity to grow here as a teacher assistant and I couldn’t be more pleased.   It has made me want to further my education in Early Childhood Studies so that I can be a better example for myself and for the children. Your children will get the very best of me while you are at work! We will laugh, smile, play, and learn as much as we possibly can. A child’s early years are the foundation for his or her future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development.
