Welcome to 1st Grade!

Hello!  My name is Jodi Southard, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our 1st grade classroom.  I was born and raised in Terre Haute and actually attended Lost Creek Elementary as a child.  I received my undergraduate degree from Indiana State University in 2001 and my Masters degree from Indiana Wesleyan in 2006.
This is my 20th year teaching.  I have taught Art, 3rd grade, and 1st grade, but my heart is definitely in 1st.  I am married and have two daughters and one son.
In my free time, I love to do CrossFit, read, and spend time with my family.
