To my students:
Saying goodbye is hard, I will miss everyone over the summer. I am intending to improve my knowledge and skills over the summer and am hopeful that you will as well. Please read a lot and do great things! To rephrase my science slogan, “Remember that School can be… FUN!”
April vacation is here!
There is much to do in these upcoming weeks.
We are turning in our Dinosaur dioramas, as well as turning in permission slips for our annual field trip! We are very excited to share our dioramas with each other as well as with the school.
We also are continuing to work on our mad science unit. I am working on an end of the year slideshow to display all of our mad science activities!!
Last week, we were lucky to have Mrs. Lajoie join our class!! She came to talk with us about germs and how they are transmitted. We also learned to wash our hands properly! Thank you so much Mrs. Lajoie!!
We will hopefully have her return to keep working on germs.
I hope that everyone is having a great break.
We have begun our Mad Science unit at school. The students have been enthusiastically engaging in a series of experiments that focus on the scientific method and practicing safety in science. So far, we have been learning about oxidation through invisible writing, and static electricity through bending water. Pictures to come soon! 🙂
Hi there! 🙂 My name is Laura Gesner. I enjoy spending my time reading, and learning new things. I love makeup, ice hockey, and teaching. Ever since I was a little girl, I always knew I wanted to teach. Teaching is who I am. I am 1 of 4 children, and when I was younger we would play school. We had an old wooden desk, and of course, I had to be the teacher. I use to love grading fictitious papers. Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I would take mental notes of how my favorite teachers taught, thinking “Oh, I will definitely being doing that.” I was fortunate enough to experience student teaching in high school. Then my love really thrived. I graduated from Fitchburg State University in 2012. After graduation, I continued to volunteer at the school I student taught at. Then I became a long-term substitute in a second grade position within the district before getting hired on permanently. I just officially completed my first year of teaching with the Athol-Royalston Regional School District. My classroom environment is a balance of serious and silly. I believe that there is a time to learn and a time to have fun, and it is my job to find the right mixture of both. I encourage you to participate in the adventure that is second grade!
