Welcome To

MRS. Polk's Webpage

Hello, my name is Mrs. Polk (formerly Miss Eisensmith) and I am the K-5 music teacher for Woodland Elementary School and Mintonye Elementary School. That means I get the opportunity to teach over a thousand students in the course of one week! I have been working in the Tippecanoe School Corporation since 2014 and love to be involved with such a wonderful community! I studied music education at Michigan State University and taught middle school choir and general music before coming to work in Lafayette. I have my Orff certification from Anderson University and am currently working on my Kodaly certificate from Indiana University. In my classroom I incorporate the National Standards for Music Education as well as the TSC and Indiana State Standards for what students should be striving to do musically. We focus on building different skills, so that students will be able to create, explore, and express themselves through making music! I look forward to working with your children this year and seeing them grow artistically and personally. Come back often for updates on classroom activities, performances, and ways that you can help support music education in your child's school.
