Welcome to Second Grade! In Second Grade, students continue to practice phonograms and spelling words in Spalding, review facts, time, and other important skills in Math, practice writing a detailed paragraph in Writing, practice skills from our Treasures Reading Series and Spalding book in Reading,and study many different units in Science and Social Studies. Students are eager to learn new skills and share their previous knowledge from their earlier grades. This is a great year to see students' progress in Reading, Writing, and Math.
I have been teaching for the past 13 years at Neely. This is my 12th year in 2nd grade. I received a Bachelors Degree from the University of Iowa in Communication Studies and History. I earned a Masters Degree in Teaching from the University of San Francisco. My mission is to challenge each student to become a life long learner and to demonstrate the joy of learning. I will help my students to continuously excel in a global society by being:
• Self-motivated learners
• Critical thinkers
• Effective communicators
• Skilled collaborators
• Responsible and culturally aware citizens
• Technologically capable creators
