A bit about me:

I am so happy to be back at McBride this year! I am teaching my second year of 2nd grade, and the third year of my career. Previous to teaching in St. Helens I was a kindergarten teacher out in Gresham, OR. I have a new baby boy at home - he'll turn 1 toward the end of this school year. In addition to playing with him, I love reading, movies, trips with my family and walking around parks trying to name all of the trees.



    Every Friday I will send home a Weekly Newsletter, containing news, updates and fun stuff. On the back of the newsletter you'll find a Reading Log. Please use this Log to help your second grader read at least 60 minutes per week; ideally you would read a minimum of 10 minutes each night. Please send the Reading Log back to me (in your student's take home folder), filled out, by the following Friday morning of each week.


    Every night your student will bring home their Planner. I will stamp it every day and some days will add a note (when necessary). Please sign your student's Planner each night. Every signed (or initialed) Planner will earn your student a sticker on my Planner Chart - every 5 stickers earns them a treat!


    Every Tuesday night I will send home between 1-2 math worksheets. These will be at grade-level, so that your student should do them mainly on their own. Please send them back (send them back in Take-Home Folders) to me by Friday morning.
