Welcome to Grade 2 in Room 2!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I hope you had a wonderful summer. My name is Jill Clarno and I will be your child's Second Grade Teacher. This will be my 4th year at Hoover Elementary and my 24th year teaching.   Before coming to Corvallis, I spent 6 years teaching first grade in Cottage Grove.  Prior to that, I taught kindergarten through third grade for 13 years in California.   Four years ago, I married Gary who is a nurse and, between us, we have 3 children - Paisley, Armstrong and Talon. 

I am thrilled to be working with you to provide a rich and challenging learning experience for your child.  I understand that your child comes to me with unique experiences, interests and learning styles.  My goal is to truly know your child well and use this knowledge to guide, support and motivate him/her towards personal success.  I believe that good teaching requires continual professional development, personal reflection and collaboration.  I value family involvement and encourage you to partner with me to give your child the most enriching learning experience possible.  We have a great year ahead of us!  I look forward to seeing you at Curriculum Night to talk about specific goals, expectations, and the class curriculum.
