Welcome to Second Grade!
Mrs. Bacon's Class
Welcome to all of my new second graders and families! I am excited to be joining the Madison Avenue Team this year! Our classroom will be filled with hands-on learning opportunities to promote positive communication, problem solving skills, critical thinking, and creativity!
Second grade is an amazing time in the development of our children as they continue to build on their foundational skills academically, socially, and emotionally. My classroom will be a safe, nurturing learning environment in which students will support each other and feel comfortable taking the risks needed to propel them to the next level.
Our goals this year will be to:
Learn to work together in cooperative groups to solve problems, create projects, and discuss our thinking
Develop our reading skills to interact with texts at a deeper level
Become confident authors
Develop our language and communication skills to increase understanding of key academic concepts
Increase our knowledge of the world around us
About the Teacher
Mrs. Bacon in Oaxaca, Mexico
My name is Angelique Bacon. I have been teaching for 11 years. My family moved here from Texas 4 years ago and this will be my fifth year with the Madison County School District. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Texas. I am a certified K-6 generalist teacher with additional certifications in English as a Second Language, Art, and Special Education. I am in the process of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher this year. For the past four years, I worked at Ann Smith Elementary as a pull-out ESL teacher. This year I will be incorporating English Language Development into all my lessons throughout the day for the benefit of all my students!
When I am not teaching, I like to read, hike, and spend time with my family. I love traveling, learning about different cultures, and learning new languages. I am learning Spanish and some phrases in many other languages.
