Hi everyone! My name is Jacob Hornberger and I am an Educational Assistant. This will be my fourth year at North Decatur. In the fall you can find me on the football field. I am one of the assistant coaches with the Jr High Football Program. You can normally find me hunting, fishing, or cheering on the Chicago Bears or Cubs.
Hi Chargers! My name is Teresa Scudder. I am an Instructional Educational Assistant. I graduated from NDHS in 1986 and graduated college with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1992. I am a life long resident of Decatur County. I have been with NDE for eleven years. I am married to my childhood sweetheart, Tex and we have three grown children and eight grandchildren (ages range from 25 to 6 years). Tex and I, along with all our children and grandchildren have been Chargers!!! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, quilting, crafting, and watching NFL football! Go Colts!
Hello, my name is Maddy Hankins and I just started working at NDES in August 2022. I have lived in the Waldron/St. Paul area my whole life and graduated from Waldron in 2016. I went on to study Human Movement and Health Science Education at Butler University and graduated in 2020. I spent the last seven years working in long term health care facilities and have ventured into a new career path! I’m working towards a Teachers License in Special Ed.
