Hello there!  Welcome to my life!

My name is Maddie, but the people I spend the most time with call me Miss Stahl.  I am about to graduate from Indiana University in May with my degree in elementary education, but first I have to complete my student teaching!  I started my student teaching at Thorpe Creek Elementary in Fishers, Indiana.  I loved every minute with my 23 wild, sweet, and funny 4th grade kiddos and my amazingly inclusive and dedicated lead teacher!  After 10 weeks with them, my next step for student teaching is to fly across the pond to Felpham, England!  I am going to be teaching in a Year 5 classroom (the equivalent to America’s 4th grade) at Downview Primary School and will keep you all up-to-date with the latest happenings in Miss Stahl’s life, both in and out of school!  The main purpose of this blog is to keep my family and friends updated on my adventures and experiences, but I hope it might impact other explorers or educators as well.  Here we go!

“Congratulations!  Today is your day.  You’re off to Great Places!  You’re off and away!  You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.  You’re on your own.  And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” -Dr. Seuss
