Welcome to Second Grade!
Second grade is a very exciting year for you and your child. Everyone loves it! Second grade is a year of fun. We have many activities planned that I know the children will enjoy. I hope that the children are excited about being in second grade and learning lots of new and interesting things.
Hello, I am Ms. Eileen Guss and I am very happy to be your child's teacher this year. I 've been teaching for seventeen years and I'm fortunate to love what I do. During my career, I've taught second, fifth and third grades. I'm thrilled to be back in second grade again and working with our second grade team.
I have a Masters Degree in Education and additional credit hours in education as well. I love teaching and helping my students learn. I feel it is very important to establish a warm and loving rapport with the children. I believe in allowing them a voice. I always look forward to helping and watching them grow into independent and confident little people. I think it’s going to be a GREAT year!
Please try to have the following items for your child’s personal use.
· Two dry erase markers
· A dry eraser for a white board that I will loan to each child
· One box of tissues for the class to share
· A container of Anti-bacterial wipes for the class
· An old shirt that you can use for an art smock placed in a zip lock (gallon size) baggie with your name printed on it.
I look forward to having a wonderful year with your child. Please remember that you can always contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by leaving a message at the office and I will return your call.
As always, I'm looking forward to a great year!!!Fondly,
Ms. Eileen Guss
