Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Dear Families, 
      WELCOME to 2nd Grade and the 2018- 2019 school year!  Welcome to our class web page.  Please visit this page for useful classroom information.  
Estimados Familias,
           BIENVENIDOS a 2nd Grado y el ano 2018 - 2019!     Bienvenidos a la pagina web y nuestra clase.  Por favor visitar esta pagina para encontrar informacion util sobre lo que esta sucediendo en nuestro salon. 

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. I recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school.  I know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:


1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college


Let’s have a wonderful year together!

 I hope you had a great summer and that you are looking forward to a new school year! I am pleased to be your child's second grade teacher this year.  I am looking forward to teaching my new students and getting to know you!  To tell you something about myself, I have been a teacher at Marvin Avenue School for 18 years.  I enjoy teaching and learning. Some of the things I enjoy doing are reading, yoga, exercising, taking walks, music, art, dancing, and spending time with family and friends.  I enjoy teaching reading and writing the English language, ELD speaking and listening, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, Music and Art.   In our classroom, we are creating an engaging, respectful and safe classroom, a community of learners where all students learn, grow and and enjoy school.
