Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer Lyle
Originally from Plainwell, Michigan, I have been a teacher at Ballard Elementary School for 18 years.
I got my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Central Michigan University in 1997 with specializations in Language Arts, Mathematics, and Bilingual/Bicultural Education - Spanish.
I moved to the area in 1998 and began teaching 4th grade as Miss Simmons.
After 6 years teaching 4th grade and becoming Mrs. Lyle, I moved to teaching 5th grade.
I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University - South Bend in 2004.
- I have an 8-year old daughter and a 6-year-old son.
Having the ability to read, write, and speak Spanish has really helped me work effectively with parents and students who speak Spanish as their first language.
