Mrs. Toy became a teacher because she loved working with children. She went to college at Indiana University. Her favorite part of teaching is working with amazing co-workers who are her friends. She did her student teaching at Loogootee Elementary East. She chose East because Mr. Luker was the principal there and was also her student teacher in 4th grade and a family friend. She was lucky enough to get a job at East the following year. She chose to be a 4th-grade teacher because she has been teaching Kindergarten for many years and wanted to work with older children. If she could teach anywhere it would be Florida because it would be close to a beach. Her most memorable part of teaching is every year seeing how much the students have grown. The people that influenced her the most in her life are her parents. She enjoys running for leisure.
