I have been teaching second grade for 10 years...second graders are THE BEST!! I am a product of this school district having gone to PDS, Sierra Vista Middle, and Buena High School. After high school I went to NAU and graduated in 1999 with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. While there I met my husband and we married in 2000. We now have 3 children; Connor- entering 3rd Grade, Kyleigh-2nd Grade and in my class this year :), and our youngest, Caden who will be 2 in November. I recieved my Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy in 2008 and my National Board Certification in November of 2009. I am so excited to work with your child!
Everyone loves a great mystery, especially second graders. Every Friday in our room we have a guest mystery reader. The mystery reader can be a mom, dad, granparent, aunt, uncle, or any other member of a student's family. Parents sign up to be mystery reader ahead of time and keep their date a secret from their students. Then on Friday, my kids wait with anticipation to see who is going to walk through the door during storytime. It is so much fun for the kids to see their family member walk in unexpectedly!
Our first Mystery Reader was Mr. Marquez. What a great job he did reading aloud the book "The Wolf who Cried Boy". Thank you Mr. Marquez!
