Katie Kinman6th grade Teacher Clark-Pleasant Intermediate • Received a Honorable mention in the Indy Southside Magazine as one of her favorite teachers, Sarah Blair, student at Clark-Pleasant Intermediate School. Sarah states, “Miss Kinman will take the time to make sure you understand the lesson. No matter what your problem is, she will listen to you. She tries to make learning fun, like in probability we used dice to see and predict what number it would land on. She makes homework sheets into puzzles. She does not tolerate bullying. The reason why I am doing this is because she has become more than a teacher, like a friend to me.” Congratulations, Miss Kinman! mg
