My philosophy of education is that all children will learn in a positive learning environment that encourages risk taking. I have a classroom environment that adjusts to the individual needs and learning styles of students, whether it be working individually with a student, small group instruction or large group instruction. I utilize the SmartBoard in all subjects. Some of the highlights in second grade include: literacy skills are strengthened and enhanced, new math concepts such as regrouping in addition/subtraction are taught, and cursive writing is introduced. The students continue to grow in their faith and prepare for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
