    Dear Parents,


    Welcome to Second Grade! I can’t believe summer is coming to an end and school is just around the corner.  I would like to introduce myself to you as your child's teacher this year.  I’m so excited to begin a rewarding educational year with you and your child.  Throughout the year please feel free to call, write, or e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns. I have found that a cohesive team between the parents and teacher helps to maximize the students overall learning experience. 

    I have been dedicated to teaching at Chesterfield since 2007, where I have enjoyed teaching 4th grade.  4th grade was a wonderful age to see children grow academically and developmentally! After that, I was ready to take my passion for teaching and experience to 2nd grade.  2nd grade is an amazing age group, the students show such an enthusiasm and curiosity for learning, and it is my hope to continue to inspire that enthusiasm in all of my students this year.

    School begins on September 5th. It is a full day of school.  Please have your child pack a snack in addition to whatever they are planning for lunch. It's helpful to have your child know how they are getting home on the first day (bus, walker, parent pick-up).  Also, please have your child bring in a favorite book and a summer vacation/activity picture.  It can be a photograph or one that is drawn.  Have him/her ready to tell about that experience.  We will have fun sharing them with the class and getting to know each other.  I will display them for you to see at Back-to- School Night.

    A list of supplies needed for second grade is listed on my website. On Sept. 5th have your child pack his/her supplies, a picture, favorite book, a nutritional snack (peanut-free), a lunch, and most of all a SMILE! If you ordered the PTA supply kits, they will be ready for your child on the first day of school.  I will help your child label the materials appropriately.
