Welcome to your child's second grade year. It is going to be very special for our young First Holy Communicants as they grow as beautiful young Catholics. They will experience self-discovery and blossoming confidence in their authentically unique personalities and their developing God-given talents.
As an educator, I know that all children can effectively learn. My goal as a teacher is to facilitate and maximize that learning, developing strong relationships to better motivate our learners. I believe that children can work effectively with others. My additional objective is to create a safe and loving classroom environment that encourages mutual respect, empathy, and cooperation.
I am delighted to be returning to the second grade as a professional educator. Your child and I will experience oceans of learning this year, creating and devouring wonderful stories as readers and authors. I am delighted to help lead the voyage along with our devoted first mate, the lovely Peggy Pettis.
Second graders have wonderful stories to tell you. Encourage these dialogues with your active listening, asking follow-up questions that steer your young author to provide rich context and juicy details. I look forward to partnering with you on your learner's behalf.
