Greetings,

  I am delighted to be your child’s second grade teacher. I am dedicated to making this school year a positive and productive experience for your child. During the year, I will be communicating with you with notes, phone calls, emails, and handouts. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. Remember, I have an open door policy and invite you into the class to help the students or communicate with me personally.

My Mission Statement as an Educator and Teacher

By Mr. Kenn Easland

 

  I teach so children will be successful. I believe children are naturally curious and that they want to learn. I motivate learning through positive methods and reward on-task skills. I want students in my classroom to feel safe, invited, supported, and able to take risks without fear of ridicule. I appreciate humor, I promote self-confidence, role model kindness, and give second chances when they are needed. Of course, I have high expectations and expect the best. When that doesn’t happen, I evaluate the lesson, the child, the setting, and the work. I provide opportunity for review and redos. I never forget that school is only part of a child’s life: There are many things outside of school that effect children. Additionally, I believe parents and teachers should work together to educate students. I believe students get what they need, not what they want. I believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and you catch more bees with honey than vinegar.


All Set? You Bet!

  Ok, that’s it for now. With your help, I will give your child the opportunity to reach for knowledge, be happy learning, and be successful!
