Welcome to the Second Grade World with Mrs. L-J

I am excited to be teaching your children! I have taught in the gifted and talented area, kindergarten, and second grade. I have been teaching in the Bismarck School system for 22 years with 21 of them at Grimsrud Elementary.

Here is a little bit of my educational philosophy. On the first day of school, your child will hear that I have two main goals for each person. I want them to leave second grade as a "great thinker" and a "super citizen"! We will discuss many examples throughout the year that will illustrate how these two achievements will affect every area of their lives. This might look something like this:
"You have homework but you play a video game until bedtime. Is this an example of good thinking?" We would respond in large group, small group or maybe in writing. We discuss what level of thinking that we are using, as well as how we can expand our thinking. If you are in our room, check out the balloons and clouds!!

Every year is a new adventure, and I am ready to begin exploring the world with your children!

If you would like to contact me, I am usually at Grimsrud from 7:45am - 3:45pm.
Grimsrud's telephone number is 323-4150 or
