    Welcome to my web page for second grade!  I am ready and excited to begin the new school year.  I have been teaching for 28 years.  This is my eighth year in Diana, and my sixth year in second grade.  I graduated from SFASU with a double major in both psychology and social work and rehabilitation services.  For several years, I was a Children's Protective Services worker.  Then I returned to college at ETBU and secured a teaching certificate with a specialization in reading.  I am recently widowed, and I have 3 grown sons and one grandson.  This spring, my family will grow with the addition of 2 more grandchildren.  I am really looking forward to a fun and rewarding year with your children.
