Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Champion

Welcome to the Class of Champions!



       I grew up in Evansville, Indiana.  Most of my immediate family still resides in that area, but since graduating from college, I have made central Indiana my home.



I attended Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  I graduated with 2 degrees.  In addition to having a degree in Elementary Education, I also have a degree in Political Science.  I obtained my masters in school administration from Butler University.





I am entering my eighteenth year of teaching.  I taught first grade for one year, fourth grade for four years, and third grade for five years, fifth grade for four years, and sixth grade for three years. 



I have been married to my husband Rich for seventeen wonderful years.  We are the proud parents of Ryan and Carly.  They both attend Hinkle Creek; Ryan is in fifth grade, and Carly is in second grade.  We are also the proud parents of Wrigley, our beloved Beagle.  Wrigley’s favorite pastime is to snuggle!  “He’s a good dog, Charlie Brown!”



I have always loved playing many different sports.  In middle school and high school, I played volleyball, softball, and basketball, and I also ran track.  Since I graduated from college, I still enjoy playing volleyball and basketball.  I also like to play golf and ride bikes.  When I am not participating in these sports, Ryan, Carly, and I enjoy being spectators at my husband’s 8th grade basketball games.



I am looking forward to a great year with all of you.  I cannot wait to begin our journey together!
