Meet Miss Ploutz
I graduated from Indiana University and started teaching in 2005. Over the years I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grade. I was honored with the Teacher of the Year Award in 2016!
I have two dogs named Rosie and Chloe and a calico cat named Tallulah. I like going on adventures with my six nieces and nephews (who are all under the age of six).
When I have free time, I like to play the piano, draw, paint, scrapbook, and sew. I also really like to cook and bake. My homemade salsa and carrot cake are big family favorites.
My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I really like all animals, but I am partial to frogs, chickens, and dogs. I am very excited to meet you!
Miss Ploutz hid a special message for room 4 in the Daily Journal newspaper during Newspapers in Education Week.
Read-it! Read-it! Read-it!
Reading is FUN! Just because AR is over doesn't mean we should put our books away; make sure you go on several reading adventures this summer. Share a great book with a member of your family today!
At the beginning of each nine weeks, your child will work to meet a new reading goal. You can see your child's AR point goal is and track their progress anytime anywhere with AR Home Connection.
Second Grade AR Point Goals
1st Nine Weeks Goal: 10 Points
2nd Nine Weeks Goal: 20 Points
3rd Nine Weeks Goal: 35 Points
4th Nine Weeks Goal: 50 Points
