Welcome to Second Grade in Room 22 for the 2018/2019 school year. It is hard for me to believe how quickly the years fly by. This is my 21st year teaching in Room 22 at Rancho Vista. Second Graders are amazing learners and I am looking forward to getting to know each of you.
School has changed over time! This is what school looked like 100 years ago when my grandmother and her 8 siblings, cousins, and neighbors learned together in a one-room schoolhouse. Even 33 years ago, school was different. At USC there were no personal computers. When I started my first career in accounting, I had to write down a company's assets (what they owned) and liabilities (what they owed to others ) on a large piece of paper called a spreadsheet. I added my columns of numbers with a calculator! What will schools look like in 30, 50 or 100 years from now? Can you imagine school in the future?
