MJ Robinson | Reading K-6 | Class Code: xebqmzu
Hello! I am Dr. Robinson, originally from Indianapolis, but currently residing in Nashville, TN. I attended Indianapolis Public Schools and graduated from Tennessee State University, Indiana University, and Nova Southeastern University. Teaching is my passion and I have taught elementary grades through college levels. I love painting with watercolors, coloring in coloring books (yes!!) as well as digitally, on my iPad. I also enjoy knitting and playing all kinds of word games and Sudoku puzzles. I love being around my family and my little doggy, Meeko! .

Tamara Reavis | Math K-6 | Classroom Code: ixib4yp
Hi! My name is Ms. Reavis (REV-iss). I graduated from IUPUI and attended Marian University for Education classes and licensure. Over the past 25 years I’ve taught students ranging in age from preschool to high school seniors. At Irvington Preparatory Academy, I teach American Literature. I enjoy gardening, cooking, swimming, crocheting, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m looking forward to working with you!

River Karner | English 7-12 | Class Code: hxc4qu2
Greetings! I have been teaching in higher education and K-12 for more than 30 years and genuinely love it as much and more than when I first started. I think that the teacher who consistently remembers she is a student has an important vantage point because it means she knows she can be a receiver, as well as a giver, abundantly broadening the possibilities of what can happen in even the most average of classrooms (if there is such a thing). I encourage students to think of our class as a community. I may be the teacher, but inside the scope of a group framework, students can begin to see that they also have information important enough to share. The students’ presence and the expression of ideas are indeed necessary to the learning experience.

Nicole Stapf | Math 7-12 | Class Code:7lym2jl
Hello! My name is Ms. Stapf. In 2016 I received my bachelor’s from IUPUI, and my master’s in teaching from Marian University in 2019. I have taught high school math at Irvington Preparatory Academy for the past five years, and have experience teaching Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, as well as Geometry. When I’m not teaching math I love lifting weights, going on runs, and playing video games — especially Zelda!Thur
