Second grade is still working hard and learning new skills from my digital instruction at home!
Below is one of my student's work from the SeeSaw online learning website or app.
SeeSaw a great tool for me and the students that is easy to navigate through. The students love getting my assignments and submitting them back to me for grading.
We love technology at SJS!

Who is excited for Second Grade?? I know I sure am!! For those of you who may be unfamiliar with me, my name is Mrs. Julie Ridings and I have been teaching for about 10 years, this will be my 9th year in a Catholic School setting. I have 7 years experience of teaching second grade and I love teaching with all my heart! I know many of our students from last year and feel comfortable with picking up right where they left off in from June to continue giving them a quality and faith based education. Wait until you see all the amazing things we are going to explore, learn, and experience together! As always I am a firm believer on positive reinforcement and try to run my classroom in an uplifting way to work towards goals. I also want you parents out there to know I am 100% open for communication on any thoughts, concerns or ideas you have. Please do not hesitate to private message me here on Parent Square or my email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Thank you for all you do and for allowing us to educate your child here at SJS!
