Welcome Harvey's Hoppers!
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! 2nd grade is going to be full of new challenges but FUN! With the full implementation of the California Common Core Standards, the expectations of students' ability to express their thinking and reasoning will be an important part of their daily learning. The math and language skills will also increase in difficulty, but TOGETHER we can make this year a success! I believe that it takes teamwork to be successful, and when we work together our students will know they have a team behind them, believing in them, helping them to achieve.
Please let me know if you ever have any questions or concerns. I will try my best to get back to you right away (e-mail is the fastest way to connect, but we can always set up a time to meet/phone conference).
I look forward to the new school year and to meeting all of you and your precious children! Here is to a SUCCESSFUL 2nd grade year!!
Who is Ms. Harvey??
So you may wonder who I am, this teacher that spends all day with your kiddos!
This is my 13th year teaching (my 7th year in 2nd grade) in TRUSD. I am National Board Certified in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts, have a Masters in Cross-Cultural Education, a Bachelors in Political Science/Minor in Psychology, GATE Certificate, and Mediation Certificate. Essentially, I have been a teacher AND a student for quite a while!
I really enjoy working at Regency Park and have found it to be my home away from home (& my home is very close by, so I may run into you at the store now and then!). I also love spending time with my wonderful family and friends. In my free time I like to camp, travel, read, cook, socialize and ENJOY LIFE!
I'm excited to get to know your child and help them learn all they can in 2nd grade!
