    I will post assignments for the week, but please remember that they are subject to change.  Thank you for visiting my web page. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, baking and watching my favorite teams compete.  I have lived in Tipp City for twenty-one years, lived in Hilliard, OH before coming here and attended St. Henry schools all twelve years of my life.  If you need to contact me, you may email me a mstucke@tippcity.k12.oh.us.
     
    I am a teacher, a mother, a grandmother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, and a friend.  Nothing excites me more than the "teachable moment"--and life is filled with these.  I enjoy learning from my students, and it is my hope that they enjoy learning from me.

    Together, we will work on becoming better readers, writers, speakers and listeners.  So much of success in life depends upon how well we can communicate our thoughts and ideas to others.  This notion will be the basis of all work and studies done in the classroom.  Your child will have opportunities to write stories and poetry, enhance grammar skills, give speeches, read many types of genre, listen to/critique his peers, build a better working vocabulary and much more.  I am excited about teaching as it truly is a passion for me.  The bulk of all work will be done during class.  Your child will be assigned one reading activity outside of class each nine weeks.  We will go to the library each grading period but students may get their book from another library.  Students should always have a book to read with them during class.
