Welcome IKE Eagles! I am Amber Daveline and I am so excited to teach 6th grade this year!
It is my personal philosophy that as an educator, it is my responsibility to be present every day to guide every child's growth academically, personally, and socially and to be a model of who we would want our children to be when they leave our classroom. I truly believe that students learn best when they are in a positive, encouraging environment that is collaborative and supportive. For me, building strong relationships early on is key to understanding each student and valuing their learning style.
I am from Manhattan, KS and I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Benedictine College in May of 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Special Education. I also completed my student teaching in this very school and the environment was so inviting that they couldn't keep me away. I can assure you that you are at one of the best schools in the nation that emphasizes quality education and focuses on students becoming leaders. As a new teacher, I am looking forward to encouraging, inspiring and motivating students to be lifelong learners! This year may look different, but I already know it will be a great year! If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me.
