I love Second Grade!  I have been with the Pleasant Ridge School District since 2003.  I began teaching in a little community in the Bay Area called San Lorenzo (it's nestled between Hayward and Oakland) in 1993.  In 22 years of teaching, I've taught grades 1 through 7 and they all have things I love about them, but the primary grades are where I'm meant to be.

We are going to have a wonderful year filled with learning, laughter, caring, friendships, and yes, some frustrations as we tackle new skills.  This is a great group of kids and I thank you for them from the bottom of my heart.

Spelling August 28 - September 1

We're starting spelling this week.  The kids will practice their words every single day in the classroom and we'll take a test on Friday.  If you want to help them practice at home, that is optional. I do not assign spelling HW.  I will post the new words each week here on the website.
