*I am Mrs. Trusty and I will be celebrating my 32nd year of teaching.  I graduated from Hardin Northern High School in 1985 and Bluffton University in 1989.   I will be teaching 3rd and 4th grade Science.  I am the JV volleyball coach and I also coach Junior High basketball.  I love sports, dogs, scrapbooking, and chocolate.  

*My husband also teaches and coaches at Mohawk.  

*We have 3 children that all graduated from Mohawk.

Andrew graduated from Malone University with his Exercise Science degree and went on to the University of South Carolina and graduated with his Masters in Health & Wellness.

Lynsey graduated from Malone University with a teaching degree and completed her masters at Bluffton University.  She will be teaching at Wynford School and coaching volleyball at Ohio Northern University.  

Chelsey graduated from Mohawk and is attending Tiffin University and is a member of the softball team.

 

3rd and 4th Grade Parents

*We will organize their desk and their cubbies on the first day of school.  

*Please make sure their supplies are marked with their name before they arrive for the first day.

*Please make sure your child brings a mask and a water bottle.         

*The students will receive an assignment book to fill out each day and they will carry it back and forth from school to home and back again.

*The students will also receive a red folder to carry their important papers in.  Important news will be in the folder along with any graded papers for you to see.

*If you have private concerns about your child or something important I need to know about your child, please send me a note with your child to school. 

Mohawk was a Great Place For My Kids to receive an education and it is a Great Place For Your Kids Too!  

It is what you make of the experience!

Please stay positive and we can work together.

I look forward to another great year. 

I am thankful for the opportunity to teach your child.

Mrs. Trusty
