I would like to welcome you and your child to second grade. This year is going to be challenging, action-packed, and I hope a wonderful academic experience. Children's success in school is more assured when the home and school work together! My goals are that: 1. the students feel successful in school by concentrating on their "strengths", giving positive encouragement, and keeping portfolios to chart their individual growth. 2. the students love to learn and are motivated to try new tasks by tuning in to their interests and making projects meaningful. 3. the students work cooperatively with one another by encouraging them to talk about their feelings, listen to one another, and treat others like they want to be treated. 4 students learn study skills: note-taking, organization, keeping an organized desk, and the importance of homework. 5. students will do their personal best. Communication is paramount ! Please, children and parents feel free to ask me questions ! If you have any ideas to share, I will try to integrate them into our year plan. Your involvement in the school is so important ! I am so happy to be your child's teacher and expect many exciting things to happen this year.
Personal Best Always !
It is my goal to inspire children to take risks, know that everyone makes mistakes (and to turn mistakes into something good), and intelligent people ask questions. We will work hard and apply our skills that we learned in real world lessons. And of course, there will be some awesome fun along the way !I want them to be life long learners and to find joy in learning and discovering ! It is an awesome journey and not a race ! Let's work together to make this the best year ever and create memories to last a lifetime.
