Hello! I’m Mrs. Williams, and this is my third year at J.R. Watson and my third year teaching kindergarten! I taught one other year, as a special education teacher with Fort Wayne Community Schools. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Manchester College (now Manchester University). Teaching kindergarten has always been my dream job, and I can’t wait to watch my students develop into readers and writers!


My name is Mrs. McIntire.  I graduated in 2000 with a degree in Family Science from Anderson University.  I have been working at James R. Watson for over seven years as a secretary.  I enjoy the Watson students and staff so much that I went back to school and graduated with an Elementa
ry Education degree in 2013.  I completed my student teaching here at Watson as well.  This is my second year teaching, and I can’t wait to see my students flourish into fantastic readers!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Hello, I am Mrs. Lancaster! I graduated from IPFW with a degree in Elementary Education with a kindergarten endorsement. I taught one year for Ft. Wayne Community Schools. I have taught fifth grade, summer school, Developmental Reading and Kindergarten. I found my home at James R. Watson teaching Kindergarten. Watching kindergarten students learn to read and write is an amazing journey that I look forward to every year!            


I am Mrs. Pfister and I teach Kindergarten at J. R. Watson. I have also taught kindergarten for Elkhart Community Schools and Lawrence Township Schools in Indianapolis. I have taught Full-Day, Alternating Day and Half Day programs in these different school districts. I graduated from Butler University in Indianapolis (Go Dawgs!) with my Elementary Teaching License and I earned a Masters in Administration from BU as well.  I never get tired of seeing how much kindergarten students change during their first year of elementary school. Their love of learning and excitement for everything you do is contagious. I am very lucky!
