Mrs. Reeder

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Spanish from Carthage College.  Later, I earned my Master’s in Educational Leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University.  I began my professional teaching career in Los Angeles, Chile (South America) as an elementary and secondary math and English teacher before settling in Chesterton, Indiana with Duneland Schools.  Last year I completed my 15th year as a Duneland 6th grade teacher.  I now serve the students and district as the WIS Math specialist.  

 
Outside of school, you can often find me on the trails, at the pool, or cheering on my boys at one of their many events.  I love to cook and eat, travel and camp, learn new things and spend time with my family and friends!
