• Welcome to the wonderful world of second grade!  This year I will be teaching all of the second graders math and Mrs. Buysse will be teaching all of the second graders language arts/reading.  In our own homerooms we will be covering science, social studies, and AR reading time.  Second grade math is all about getting our fluency down with adding and subtracting, learning about place value and comparing and ordering larger numbers, adding and subtracting up to 3-digit numbers, naming a describing various 2D and 3D shapes, learning how to tell time and count money, and learning what equal parts are.  

    Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility, and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. However, I cannot do this without your help.  We are partners in the learning process!  

    I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.  Throughout the year I will communicate through my website, notes, telephone calls, emails, class Facebook page, and parent teacher conferences.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.  You can call me at the school, send me a written note in your child's assignment book, or contact me via email.

    In Minneota Public Schools we show Viking Valor.  We act with respect, show honor, and meet high expectations in all areas of our school.

    I am so excited for this school year!  It's a great day to be a Viking!
