Welcome to Second Grade!
Mrs. Bacon's Class
Welcome to all of my new second graders and families! I am excited to begin my fourth year at Madison Avenue this year! Every year brings a new adventure, and I am excited to see what this year will bring us. This year we will continue to work together to keep the classroom safe and engaging.
We will be focusing on hands-on learning opportunities to promote positive communication, problem- solving skills, critical thinking, and creativity. I can't wait to see what learning treasures we will discover together!
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 14 years. My family moved here from Texas 6 years ago and this will be my seventh 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 hoping to become a National Board Certified Teacher this year. Previously, I worked at Ann Smith Elementary as a pull-out ESL teacher and a first grade ESL classroom teacher in Texas. Each year I incorporate 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.

This year will be full of new adventures in learning. I am also excited to have Mrs. Montgomery as my assistant this year. She has been an assistant at MAE for nine years. She loves working with the children at MAE!
We are excited to get to know each child and their family as we begin our Second Grade journey together!
