Welcome to 2nd Grade!            Welcome back to the Jazzy Jackson class page! Let me start by saying I do understand how difficult is it during this time of trying to remain positive and safe during this Coronavirus Epidemic. As we try to work through these times, I am here to help in whatever way I can help my students. Please adhere to the plans and packets that will be posted weekly on my teacher webpage and the packets that will be available at the school. I enjoy preparing my 2nd graders to become in the mindset of a 3rd grader, pushing deeper into our College and Career Readiness Standards and in their thinking in an engaging way. Our class is FULL of learning through hands-on, fun, and thought-provoking activities. I look forward to continuing to have the best year yet with my students no matter the circumstances!!
