My goal for the school year is to help each student grow academically and socially in a warm, creative, and safe environment - our classroom. Second grade is a year to develop and learn many new skills and to explore the world around us. The world for these children is moving beyond self and immediate family, and extending to include their school family and parish community. Each of us have different opinions, ideas, needs, and strengths; and the students need to remember to be kind, encouraging, and supportive of one another. A very important part of this is our religion curriculum - as the students will be prepared for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. By receiving these two sacraments, it is my hope that every child in my class will learn to respect others and feel respected by others, which will help create a positive learning experience in our classroom!
I believe that good communication and a team effort between teacher and parents leads to success for the students both in school and at home. Therefore, if you need to contact me, please either send a note with your child, contact the school office, or use my e-mail address and I will respond as soon as I can. If you use my e-mail, please know that it will not be possible for me to check my e-mails during the school day. If your message needs an immediate response, please contact the school office and someone will give your message to me promptly.
