Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to King Elementary!
I am so excited to be your child’s 2nd grade teacher this year. This is my first year teaching! I graduated in 2017 with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Kansas State University. I moved from Kansas to Colorado Springs in July, and I am loving it! Some of my favorite things include hiking, watching TV and movies, crocheting, and doing things with friends. In our classroom, I want students to feel safe, supported, and cared for. I believe this is the environment in which children learn best. I also want to hold my students to high expectations - both academically and behaviorally. To accomplish this, we will be using a behavior clip chart as well as Class Dojo. Students will earn “bonus points” in Class Dojo based on what color on the clip chart they ended their day on. Your child will be bringing home their Cougar folder each night. This will contain any papers to be kept at home, forms, information, and homework. You can expect math homework each night. Students should also be practicing their spelling words each night. Any reading done at home can be marked on their Cougar University calendar each night. Students of this age should be reading for at least 20 minutes at home each night. We are going to have a busy and fun year! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
