• The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards”. Anatole France 


      Welcome to my second grade classroom where English Language Arts comes alive with great literature, interesting movie clips and thought provoking lessons. My classroom is a community of "Awesome" and not "Average" students who are challenged daily to do and be their very best.  Students are greeted everyday with a hug, a handshake or a high five!  It is my belief that curiosity and the desire to be challenged reside deeply in all children, and when cultivated, leads students to a life-long engagement in learning. 


      We welcome parent and community involvement and beckon you to be a part of our learning environment.  One of the best ways to help me help your child is to send them to school with a positive attitude towards learning!  Please note that I am always available to speak with you regarding your child, if you have any concerns or wish to schedule a conference, please call the office number and they will direct you to me.  You may also email me at shoffnt3@gcsnc.com.



     Students are required to read every night for 30 + minutes and have  Reading Log signed.
