  • Good day!  My name is Lynn Wise.  I go by Lynn even though my first name is Teresa.

    I have taught at North Clay for the past ten years.  I originally taught 7th and 8th grade English, or Language Arts.  Other classes I have taught include Read 180, current events, Achieve 3000, and reading labs.  I currently work 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.

    I enjoy teaching at North Clay.  I especially enjoy learning about students, their personal goals, and what kind of activities or strategies help them learn best.  I wish all students to enjoy school and to benefit from the quality education they receive here at North Clay Middle School.
