Hello parents and welcome to 2nd grade!
I am thrilled to be starting my second year as the 2nd grade teacher here at TJS! I got my teaching degree from the University of Montana in Missoula with an endorsement in literacy. I have been teaching for a total of four years and started my teaching career in Dolores, CO , before moving to Durango. I love the outdoors, which makes Durango the perfect place for me. Colorado and Montana are both incredible states to explore, and with my teaching experience in both places I have been able to bring learning to life with both the natural and cultural diversity in these beautiful states.
I am so excited to be working with your child this school year. As an educator it is my job to see how your child learns and plays in order to establish a trusting relationship and help your child grow both socially and academically. I would like to learn more about your child so that I can guide them in having a successful and meaningful academic year. You can help this process by answering the questions on the back of this page.
