Hello students and families!  I’m Braden Lanter and this is my 7th year as a classroom teacher.   I am originally from Oblong, Illinois and moved to Terre Haute in 2006 to attend Indiana State University.  Upon graduation, I taught 3rd and 1st grade here at DeVaney.  I have a true love for 1st grade and I am very thankful to be part of the DeVaney family!

Classroom Rules

  • Follow Directions Quickly
  • Raise Your Hand For Permission To Speak
  • Raise Your Hand For Permission To Leave Your Seat
  • Make Smart Choices
  • Keep Your Teacher Happy

Student behavior is managed using a positive system called clipping up.  All students begin the day on green.  As students display positive behavior, they move their clip up the chart.  The idea is to reward positive behavior.  If a student breaks a rule, he/she will have their clip moved down and could face various consequences.  However, students always have opportunities during the school day to bring their clip back up.

Please label the following supplies with your child’s name:

  • scissors
