5th Grade Teacher
I graduated from Winchester Community High School in Winchester, Indiana, in 1977.
I graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, in 1981. I took further graduate classes there from 1996-1999.
Then I completed my education courses at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana in 2006.
I received a B.S. in Choral/General Music from Ball State. Later I completed graduate work there in Special Education. My last coursework was when I completed a “Transition to Teaching” course at Taylor which certified me to teach elementary.
I have completed all requirements for continuing education over the years following the many subjects I have taught.
This is my third year teaching at Weatherford Public Schools. I will be teaching 5th Grade Social Studies and English Language Arts which includes grammar, writing, and spelling.
I started teaching in 1984. This will be my 30th year of teaching. My teaching career has spanned the following subjects: choral/general music, special education, 4th grade, 6th grade, 9th grade English, Spanish, Title I, High Achievement/Gifted and Talented, and Educational Therapy (working with students who have learning disablities 1 on 1).
In addition I have lived in England, France, Burkina Faso, West Africa, and Venezuela which has enhanced my life and my teaching!
My husband’s name is Bob Sprunger. His job is part-time chaplain for Comforting Hands Hospice out of Elk City. Currently he is not working due to many complications following a kidney transplant in Februray We do not have any children, but I love the children that are in my life because of teaching.
I love to play the piano and sing. Humming and/or whistling are habits of mine. I do love to read and am in a book club. Over the summer I read 8 adventure books, just for the fun of it! There was Robison Cruso, The Swiss Family Robinson, and more!
My husband and I watch lots of old westerns for entertainment. We also are involved in our church and like to have people over to our house to play card games.
