Welcome to Second Grade! In this room children read, write, build, experiment, create, think, problem solve, and lead! We are very busy! This year we will begin a journey together. Your child will mature and become more self reliant as they take this large step in their educational career. He/she will be reading books, writing stories, and thinking critically about the world around us. Your child will become a leader! My goal is to challenge and encourage each student to excel, and make them a lifelong learner. I will strive to create a safe place where your child can feel valued and respected.
