My Classroom Website

Dear Second Grade Families,

My name is Michele Link-Valenstein and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! Second grade is a busy and exciting year!  Your children are going to work hard and do their best - everyone at United will be working together to ensure the success of each and every student.

A little information about me - I am originally from Saint Paul, Minnesota.  I live in Ames with my husband, Justin, and our Yorkie-Poo, Zoey.  Justin is currently a chemistry graduate student at Iowa State University.   In my spare time I love to read, go to my workout class, golf, and travel to Minnesota and Wisconsin to visit family.

I encourage you to use this website to gain full understanding of your child's 2nd grade experience.  I will update this website throughout the year to include our current units of study and upcoming classroom and school-wide events.

I am looking forward to working with our 2nd grade families.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns you have regarding your child.  Your children are going to accomplish amazing things this year and I want to ensure that parents are part of this process!
