  • Good day!  My name is Lynn Wise.  Family and friends call me Lynn even though my first name is Teresa.

    I have taught at North Clay for the past eleven years.  I originally taught 7th and 8th grade English, or Language Arts.  Other classes I taught included Read 180, current events, Achieve 3000, and reading labs.  Last year I also worked in the Resource Room with Mrs. Thompson.

    I acquired my BS in English (teaching) from Indiana State University in 1977.  Soon after, I joined the Air National Guard and worked for that branch of the service for several years.  Between 1994 and 1999 I lived overseas with my family for about 5 years.  I rejoined the Guard in 1999.  By the time I retired from the Air National Guard in 2009, I had the opportunity to work with wonderful people in various career fields.

    In 2002 I decided to set my career path toward my initial goal of teaching.  I did some substitute teaching in Clay County while I completed my Master of Science degree in English education.  I was hired as a full time substitute for a semester at Northview High School during the same semester I matriculated, which was in the spring of 2008.

    This year I have the wonderful opportunity to work with North Clay as well as Northview High School as the librarian/media specialist. I can't say how much I am looking forward to the challenges as well as the pleasures of working with students and faculty in both schools this school year--2019-2020! A lifetime of learning has led me to the media center, and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
