Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Prather

Penny

    Welcome to fourth grade at Edgelea Elementary.  I am Mrs. Prather and I grew up right here in Lafayette, and attended LSC schools.  Between Mr. Prather and myself, we have four children (3 boys and 1 girl) and four beautiful grandchildren (2 boys and 2 girls) that Nana works very hard to spoil.  I have been teaching for 10 years.  I taught kindergarten until four years ago when I made the move to fourth grade.  I can not think of any job that could be better than being a teacher.  It is the one thing that I wanted to do my whole life.  I love to help my students learn and I treasure those lightbulb moments with my students.
     I am very excited about starting a new school year.  We have many fun and educational opportunities planned for the year.  With that being said, it is very important that we are ALL (teacher, parent and student) working together to have a successful year for every tune to.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  You can email me at pprather@lsc.k12.in.us, call me at (765)772-4780, or stop in before or after school.  I can't wait to get this year started.  I hope to see everyone Monday, August 10 for back to school night and again on Tuesday, August 18 at Open House.
