Meet Mrs. Morton

I grew up near Dallas, Texas but Indiana has been my home for 32 years.  I have been teaching at Mohawk Trails Elementary since 1994.  I taught second and third grades until I moved to fourth grade in 2000.  I absolutely love teaching fourth grade students.  They are independent, curious learners who understand my wacky sense of humor.

I have been a Lead Teacher for Mohawk Trails for many years and I serve on the School Improvement Council. This year, I am the Technology Coordinator for Mohawk. I have my undergrad and master's degrees from Indiana University and completed my school administrator course work through Indiana Wesleyan University. I knew from a very early age that I was born to teach.  I love the excitement in kids' eyes when they "get it."  I call those light bulb moments.  I also love that my job is so fun.  I get to laugh and have fun with kids everyday! 

I am the middle child of five kids.  I have three brothers and one sister.  I am the mom to four grown kids, including triplets!   I have two grandsons and one granddaughter. You will hear lots of crazy stories about my family.  I enjoy reading, relaxing on the beach in Florida, laughing hysterically, and just about anything chocolate.  I love technology and learning new ways to use it to teach and learn.
