Dear Parents,
Welcome to kindergarten!  I am very excited to have your child in my class.  If you have any questions during the year please don't hesitate to email at nohara@mcmish.org.
 
 
Meet the teacher:  I have been in catholic education for 18 years. I have a B.A. in English from the University of Notre Dame and I went through the Saint Mary's College Elementary Education program.  I have taught 3rd grade, kindergarten, and first grade. Three of my children attend Mishawaka Catholic and my oldest daughter is a freshman at Marian High School. My family belongs to the St. Bavo parish.
