Welcome! In Second Grade, students continue to practice phonograms and spelling words in Spalding, review facts, time, and other important skills in Math, practice writing a detailed paragraph in Writing, practice skills from our Treasures Reading Series and Spalding book in Reading, and study many different units in Science and Social Studies. Students are eager to learn new skills and share their previous knowledge from their earlier grades. This is a great year to see students' progress in Reading, Writing, and Math.
This is my 12th year teaching at Neely. I have a bachelor's degree in Applied Mechanics from the University of California, San Diego and a master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix. My mission as a 2nd grade teacher is to motivate, inspire, encourage, and support students by providing a safe, secure, and loving environment to educate them socially, emotionally, and cognitively so they can continue to build a foundation for life-long learning.
