Dear Brand New 2nd Graders and Families,
You’ve made it to Second Grade! My name is Dawn Young and I will be your child’s second grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. I am very excited to get to know you and your family!
It will be my third year at Midtown and my eighteenth year teaching in Roane County. I feel so fortunate to have the ability to work with wonderful staff, supportive families, and the outstanding students of Midtown Elementary.
My mission as an educator is to establish the best possible learning environment for my students. I will guide your child to become a lifelong learner who knows how to understand and navigate the ever changing world. We will use age appropriate technology every day. Students will develop problem solving skills by learning how to troubleshoot as needs arise. To support each child, I will work to ensure that the parent and teacher relationship is established. I will communicate through various methods about your child’s progress and success. This coming year your child will do many new things. Some examples of what we will do are: work with others, explore new things, listen to and follow directions, become independent in learning, and develop good decision making skills. Daily practice of all these things will provide your child with all of the necessary ingredients to a successful school year.
I am eager to get to know each and every one of you. Please feel free to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Enjoy your summer and plenty of good books! We are going to have a fantastic and fun-filled year starting in August!
Mrs. Dawn Young
