Welcome to 2nd Grade

Welcome to the second grade! Our Theme for this year is: ‘Positive Passengers Wanted on the 2nd Grade Energy Bus who are Prepared for the Ride of Their Lives”

Second grade is a challenging and exciting time for the children as there are a lot of new firsts (a new teacher, new subjects, more involved responsibilities etc.) and it is our First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion year. I believe in a hands-on learning process (even when dealing with the limitations of Covid-19), so I plan on a year full of activities and projects to enhance the learning process for our classroom learning community. I firmly believe in creating a learning environment that best benefits the individuality of my students and their learning needs! Right now, I have standiing desks, wobble stools, and ball chairs available to aid in this process. More changes are planned once this Covid-19 crisis is dealt with!

About Me

Hello everyone! I hold a Masters Degree in Education from Chestnut Hill College and have been teaching in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for my entire career, I am currently in my 20th year in education and this is my 15th year here at St. Ignatius!

I have been happily married to my best friend for 39 years! My husband is the Director of Technology for Conwell Egan High School and is the one responsible for all the marvelous pictures shared on their website especially when our 1st Graders attend their annual Christmas Party! My passion is "working with my Little Angels" and finding new, creative, and interactive ways to help them own their learning! I also love getting together with my family and friends, music, old movies, and reading!
