Hi! My name is Mindy Bland. I grew up in northwest Ohio (Go Buckeyes!) in a small farming community. My husband Eric and I both attended Taylor University in Upland, Indiana where we met. We've been married for eight years and have two kids. Lucas is almost six and will be a kindergartener at TME this year, and Sophie just had her third birthday in July. Eric teaches math at Westfield High School and is a proud football coach. Our family enjoys spending time outside, visiting the library, going to sporting events, and playing board games.
This is my nineth year of teaching here in the Carmel schools. I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I could remember. I LOVE what I do and thoroughly enjoy watching kids learn. It brings me great joy to watch my school kids grow as individuals throughout the school year. They are like my second family!! I look forward to getting to know you and your family a lot this year.
