Welcome To Second Grade

I am honored to be a member of the Belle Ryan family!  I am excited to be teaching your children this year.  Second grade is filled with wonderful learning opportunities.  We will be learning a lot of new material this year and it is important that we work together as a team so that our kiddos can reach their full potential.  Please feel free to contact me, or even better, stop by and visit our classroom.  You are always welcome.

Our classroom has five basic expectations.  They are as follows:

1.  I can follow directions the first time given.
2.  I can raise my hand to speak.
3.  I can raise my hand to leave my seat.
4.  I can make smart choices.
5.  I can make my dear teacher happy. 

I look forward to meeting you and guiding our children on an awesome learning adventure! 

Biography

This is my 14th  year teaching in the Omaha Public Schools.  I live in Logan, Iowa with my husband Robert.  We have three children, Skye, Devon, and John.  They are all grown up and busy living their lives.  We also have three grand daughters, Madyson, Ellie, and Payton.   We keep busy going to their basketball and softball games, as well as to their school chorus and band concerts.

We added a new member to our family over the summer.  Our son John married Samantha.  They are each awesome individuals and we look forward to being a part of their life as a couple.   

I love animals and the outdoors!  We have dogs, cats, a fish, and horses.  My hobbies include kayaking, swimming, reading, writing poetry and walking with our dogs. 

Academics

I graduated from the University of Nebraska in Omaha with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.  I also have a Master of Science in Education  from Peru State College. 

I continue to grow professionally through staff development and curriculum days offered through the Omaha Public Schools.  Learning is very important to me.
