Second Grade

Jamie  Casteel

Welcome to Second Grade!


We will learn many things in second grade. The children will grow a lot this year. In second grade the children are starting to prepare for upper elementary and the challenges that they will face. During this year the students will be receiving two sacraments and I take that responsibility very seriously. Your child’s spiritual development is of the utmost importance. I make sure that your child not only knows their faith but works towards living it. We work on our personal relationship with Christ by visiting the blessed sacrament and doing meditative prayer.


In our classroom, we discuss how to work out problems with others. We work hard to treat everyone the way Jesus would want us too. We also work together to accomplish our learning goals. Cooperative learning is at the heart of our classroom. Learning is something that kids should enjoy so I use many educational games and make sure to take brain breaks to keep our minds and bodies moving.
