Remember When. . .
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 three).
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!

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!
