Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Hello 2nd Grade parents,

My name is Caitlin Whissel and I am looking forward to meeting your child very soon!  We are going to have an exciting, action-packed year filled with lots of new learning experiences.  We will also focus on modeling our actions as disciples of Christ as we learn about His life and resurrection, in preparation for the sacraments your child will receive this year.  

Our class will work together during the first few weeks of school to build a classroom environment where every student feels welcomed and can learn fairly.  I have high expectations of my students and will stop at nothing to help them rise to these expectations.  One way I do so is by using the "Whole Brain Teaching" model in my daily instruction, which is very exciting, engaging, and motivational; it involves every part of the brain in the learning process!  To see what it looks like, you can view this short video outlining some basic principals:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBeWEgvGm2Y

Please feel free to email me (grade2@stmarylh.org) with any questions or concerns.  I am always available and will return your message promptly.  I look forward to building relationships with each of you to make this year GREAT!


See you soon!


Ms. Whissel
