• Welcome! This is my thrid year of teaching at Beardslee Academy. I am excited to be working with your kids. This year I am teaching 2nd grade in room 11. I invite you to come and see student work. My door is always open! Each year I focus on something I want to work on as an educator and work on with the kids. The focus for the classroom is writing and connecting wordly concepts to student writing. We will be working on writing as a process. Students will learn about the writing process and learn to self and peer-assess. Along with writing we will be sharing our ideas, culture, and values to create a comfortable and fun learning environment. This will be a great year!
