Welcome back to school! My name is Allison Goedke and I will be your scholar’s 2nd grade teacher this year! I graduated from Saint Xavier University with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education and an endorsement in middle school mathematics. I am so lucky to have had a great education that has well prepared me to meet the needs of your scholar. I am so excited to begin my first year at Balmoral Elementary and to help your scholar learn and grow!
We have an exciting year of learning ahead of us! In 2nd grade, we will begin the transition from simple sentence books to chapter books. In previous grades, your scholar “learned to read” and in 2nd grade they will begin to “read to learn”! Your help in this process is very important. Reading together for 30 minutes each night will have a great impact on your scholar’s reading and comprehension skills!
Communication is an important part of your scholar’s educational journey. We are in this together! If at any time you or your scholar have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. The best way to reach me is via e-mail (email@example.com) and I will address your questions and concerns as soon as possible. Here's to a wonderful school year!
