Welcome to second grade! Building a respectful and tight-knit 2nd grade community is a huge priority in our classroom. In addition to this, students will engage with both older and younger grade levels on a weekly basis. Whether it be through reading buddies or mini project presentations, it is important for students at this age to both set and witness what good examples of learning look like. 

While large milestones/ accomplishments have reason to be celebrated, I also believe in celebrating and calling attention to the smaller victories that are achieved along the way with students. Bringing these to the front burner make students feel proud and light the fire for them to continue striving to do better. 

Second grade is about finding students balance of independence and collaboration with peers and teachers. I’m excited to begin my second year in this journey.
