Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to 2nd grade!! I am delighted to have your child in my class this school year. I am looking forward to a very successful semester and know you are too. I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this year. I love teaching and I believe students grow and develop by encouraging their natural curiosity about the world.

During my first week as their teacher, I will be spending some time getting to know everyone and allowing the students to become comfortable with various classroom routines. One of my main goals is to help students become independent workers and thinkers.

I have high academic expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations. Because you are an integral part of your child’s education, I feel communication is of vital importance. I hope to talk with the parents and/or guardians of each of my students in the coming weeks. I would also like to extend an invitation for you to contact me at any time. I can be reached through the main office at school, social media platforms, or via email. If you would like to talk in person, I am always available to schedule appointments during my conference period (Students PE time) or after school. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.


Ms. Jessica Leavell

Second Grade Teacher
