Hello Orchard Families!
My name is Mrs. Monica Grays, the 2nd grade teacher.
I believe that all children can and want to learn. My main goal is to help your child become an independent learner. To reach this goal, I will meet your child where they are and guide them as far as possible. To accomplish this goal, I will use learning centers and inquiry based learning. Your child will be completing activities and projects in small groups around the classroom; each designed to focus on a different content area, such as reading, science and listening. They also will learn how to ask high-level questions. In addition, your child will learn other important skills, such as responsibility, decision-making, and self-evaluation.
It’s my pleasure to work with you and your child.
