    Shack's  parents' night 2010 Shack's parents' night 2010 Presentation Transcript

    • Welcome to Shackelford’s Second Grade Superstars!
    • All About Mrs. Shackelford
      BS and MS in Education-University of Alabama
      and Converse College
      EDS (Educational Specialist Degree in
      Technology)-Lesley University
      Married with two sons and twin grand-daughters
      3 Shih tzus!
      Teaching Experience:
      12 years-3rd grade
      7 years-2nd grade
    • Unity
      I dreamed I stood in a studio and watched two sculptors there.
      The clay they used was a young child’s mind and they fashioned it with care.
      One was a teacher the tools she used were books and music and art; One was a parent with a guiding hand and a gentle, loving heart.
      And when at last their work was done. They were proud of what they had wrought. For the things they had worked into the child could never be sold or bought.
      And each agreed she would have failed if she had worked alone. For behind the parent stood the school and behind the teacher stood the home.
      By Ray A Lingengelter
    • My Philosophy
      Your children’s education and well-being are my #1 priority.
      My classroom environment is positive, nurturing, consistent, and fair.
      The children and I will develop a school family where children respect peers and adults, and above all feel comfortable being themselves.
    • 2nd Grade Anxiety
      2nd graders can have some anxiety when school begins.
      The expectations require children to be more responsible and independent.
      There’s more for them to remember with rules and procedures.
      Help your child with encouraging words and praise.
      Let your child take on more responsibility at home.
