Welcome to our Second Grade Classroom!
My name is Ms. Comfort. I am very excited to be teaching your child in the second grade this year. It will be a year packed full of learning and fun adventures! We are continuing to implement the Reading Wonders curriculum for reading and EngageNY for math where students will be learning not to just "do" but to think and support their answers and opinions. I am excited to see what type of learning takes place!
I have been teaching for 9 years now, and I have taught the first, second, third and fifth grade. I graduated from University of Oregon with my bachelor’s of Science and later from Eastern Oregon University with my Master’s in Education.
I am lucky enough to have a beautiful family. I have a beautiful son named Chad who is 7 years old and a happy daughter named Claire who is nearly 4 years old. They keep me one my toes and giggling my way through my days. We enjoy spending time outdoors, camping, running, exercising and I enjoy reading a variety of novels.
Two years ago, we resided overseas in Marrakech, Morocco as I taught first grade for the year at The American School of Morocco. The experience was irreplaceable as we were able to immerse ourselves and learn about a culture so different than our own. We were able to travel to the Sahara Desert; Essouria, Morocco; Chefchaouen, Morrocco as well as Paris, France. Seeing the world has been an eye opening experience!
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to teach your child and provide them with their second grade education. They are a special set of kids who I am lucky I get to spend my days with!
