Welcome to 2nd Grade at Finely Farms Elementary! This year we will work hard and play hard. We study phonics and reading with Fundations, work on writing across all genres, build a love for reading with Accelerated Reader and work in Daily 5 reading groups. We use Math Expressions curriculum and incorporate games in our daily math activities. We explore butterflies and weights and measures in science and look closely at maps, and westward movement in Social studies. Student specials include Art, Music, Computers, Library and P.E.
I've been teaching for 11 years. This is my first year in Second Grade and I'm thrilled to be teaching a new grade after ten years in Kindergarten. I've been with Gilbert Public Schools for the last three years and spent the previous seven years teaching in Mesa.
I attended college in St. Louis where I earned my BA in Communications and Marketing and my MA in teaching reading.
