Welcome to my class.  This is my fourth year teaching at Mimosa School.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year of teaching and learning with your second graders.  I will teach special education in second grade for the subjects in reading, writing, core knowledge, and math this year.

Week of May 18-22, 2020

Welcome families to our last week of school! We have made it to the end of the school year and summer is right around the corner. Let's make sure to work hard and make our remaining time count! I hope you are staying safe and healthy. This week we will continue Lexia and Zearn. Grades will be available on Powerschool at the end of the week. Report cards and IEP progress reports will be mailed to you. 

I strongly encourage your child to log into Lexia at the beginning of June to continue their subscription. Zearn will be available to them over the summer too. They should be reading and journal writing daily to maintain their academic skills and prevent. Feel free to email me with any questions as I check my email daily.
