Welcome to 2nd Grade! We are ALL IN !

Meet your teacher

My name is Vanessa Watkins and I have been teaching 2nd grade at Harmony for eight years. I have been married to my husband, Dustyn, for seven years now and we have two beautiful girls.  Mayzie just turned four and Malee will be three in December. I graduated from Harmony in 2005 and attended college at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX.  I have a Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (EC-6) and am planning on achieving my Masters degree in Counseling.  My personal hobbies are reading, watching movies, listening to music, Texas Rangers baseball, and playing with my girls.  My favorite snacks would be Diet Dr. Pepper and Cheez-its!

You are joining a FAMILY and a lifetime support system.  When you enter my classroom you become one of my children.  Throughout our year together we will create, imagine, achieve, question, LAUGH, and explore! Our goal for the year is to grow as learners and strengthen bonds as friends.  You will be successful at some things and struggle with others, but in the end you will be a stronger student!  I look forward to spending time with you and having a wonderful year.

We use the ClassDOJO app for our classroom behavior log. You can download the app on your phone or personal computer. The program allows you to see minute to minute choices that your child is making in class. I will also upload photos throughout the year to your child's story.  Students will earn points for each positive behavior. They will use these points to earn treasure chest prizes!
