Hello! Welcome to St. John-Emmanuel (SJE) Lutheran School! I am Mrs. Kim Priest. I have been the second grade teacher at SJE since 2008. Before that I was the resource teacher at SJE. I love teaching the 2nd grade! I feel that I learn each year, along with my students.
Some of the things that we do each year include field trips to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, the Gingerbread House display at the Historical Museum, McMillen Health, and Pokagon. The afternoon of the trip to see the gingerbread houses we build our own gingerbread houses! We also learn how to write in cursive starting in January. Our biggest project is in the spring when we watch our own class caterpillars becomea chrysalis, and then a butterfly! Finally, with our schoolmates, parents, principal, and teachers all gathered outside to watch, our pastor leads us in prayer before we release our butterflies into God's awesome world!
I am excited about this next school year at St. John-Emmanuel Lutheran School!
