Dear 2nd Graders,
My name is Mrs. Shirley and I am going to be your second grade teacher. I would like to tell you a few things about myself before we meet next week.
I graduated from the University of Houston in Clearlake with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. This will be my 8th year to teach second grade. I live in Mont Belvieu and I have been married 22 years to my husband, Larry. We have two children in college, Kevin and Alex. Also, I have 3 dogs named Chewie, Zero, and Daisy. Chewie and Zero are Chihuahuas and Daisy is a German Sheppard. I love dogs and I always have funny stories about mine.
The summer sure flew by fast. I spent a few weeks in Washington D.C visiting with my sister. It was really exciting to see the White House and Lincoln Memorial. Also, I spent a lot of time preparing our classroom and creating engaging math, reading, and science activities for you.
On the first day of school, we are having a Show and Tell. Bring something small and special that you would like to talk about. We will take care of it and you can bring it home the same day. I can’t wait to see you and I know we are going to have a fantastic school year!
Here is my e-mail address in case you need something, have a question, or just want to write me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
