Mrs. Tamara Panning

Teacher - Grade 5

Living in a household of accomplished runners, Tammy Panning holds her own. As a committed runner herself, she brings energy and models diligence to her fifth-grade students. One of the most rewarding parts of teaching for Tammy is when students have “ah-ha” moments as concepts are fully understood. A Ball State graduate, Tammy holds a BA in elementary education and has completed the colloquy program through the Concordia University system. She, husband Dave, and two sons are long-time members of St. Michael Lutheran Church. Outside of the school setting, Tammy enjoys cooking, watching movies, and soaking up moments with family at their lake home. She especially treasures time when her college-aged boys are home to be a part of it all.
