Welcome to 2nd grade. I have been an educator for 22 years with 21 of those being her at Black River. I started my career here teaching 7th grade Language Arts then spent time teaching 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies, K-1 Title One and finally landed in 2nd grade. The absolute favorite part of my job is seeing a students light bulb come on when all our work clicks and they finally get a concept we have been working on. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, watching movies, and spending time outdoors.
In Second Grade we strive to help students become respectful, responsible, resourceful and ready pirates. We encourage students to take all the skills they previously learned and apply them to new learning concepts. In Math we focus on fluently adding and subtracting as well as building a better sense of numbers, In Literacy we we focus on diving deeper into a text to recall detailed information and writing complex sentences to form paragraphs.
