Welcome to Second Grade!

Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                    


          It’s great to be a second-grade teacher at Clara Barton School!  I am looking forward to an exciting, educational, and fun year with you and your child.  I’m honored to partner with you in extending your child’s learning this year.  Parents are a child’s first teacher, and I want to be able to use your knowledge and past experiences to help me teach your child in the best way possible.       

          You will receive more information later this month at Back to School Night (Wednesday the 12th) about all the wonderful learning and associated experiences your child will take part in this year as second graders at Clara Barton School.

           We have several early celebrations in September. Patriot Day is Tuesday, September 11th, Constitution Day is Monday, September 17th, and "Talk Like a Pirate Day" is on Thursday, September 20th. Please refer to the related post at the bottom of this page for more details about our “Talk Like a Pirate Day Celebration”.  

          Thank you for your time and cooperation.  I extend to you and your child the warmest of welcomes to second grade at CBS.  I can’t wait to get to know you and your child, so Room 216 can function like an extended family whose goal is the mental, emotional, and social improvement of  its most precious gift and resource—the children. 

          Please feel free to contact me via phone 298-0676 (extension 3125) or email ( with any questions or concerns.
