Hello! I am Mrs. Maple, and I have been teaching fourth grade since 1998. I
received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, along with majors in
Business Administration and Social Work. I also hold a Master's Degree in
Education. I enjoy working with families to ensure each child will be a
successful learner. It is both humbling and rewarding to see the amazing work
that fourth graders are capable of producing.
Hello! I'm Mrs. Samuelson. I moved to Auburn in 1993 and began my teaching
career as a substitute teacher for Dekalb Central Schools. This allowed me to
teach many different subjects and grade levels. Since that time, I have called
JRW home! I have taught Developmental Reading, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and most
recently 4th grade. I am a graduate of Indiana University, where I obtained a
Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with Middle School
Endorsements in Social Studies and Language Arts. My favorite thing about
teaching is getting to know my students and making learning fun. It is very
exciting watching students learn new things everyday!
Hello! I am Mrs. Smith! I received my Bachelor’s degree with a
kindergarten endorsement from Ball State. My goal each and everyday is to
promote a safe and positive environment for each child to be successful. My
favorite thing about fourth grade is the students’ eagerness to learn.
My name is Mrs. Eltzroth, and I'm excited to teach fourth grade!
