Hey everyone! I am a 2nd grade teacher in an rural elementary school in upstate NY. We are right between Buffalo and Rochester. Before this year (2013-2014), I taught fourth grade for 6 years and one year as a 5th grade S.S. and Writing teacher. This past year our district departmentalized grades 3-6 and I taught all fourth graders ELA. I love it! However, when an opportunity opened to teach 2nd, I jumped at it! I am so excited to teach the little ones this year!!
