Mrs. Akins - 2nd & 3rd Grade
Welcome to our second grade class in Room 9 at Tompkins. We have a
very busy and exciting year in store for us!
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is
Mrs. Akins and this will be my 27th year as a teacher and my 8th year
as a second grade teacher.
I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a
tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that
each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the
classroom. However, I cannot do this alone. I need your help. We both
need to be partners in the learning process. I need each of you to
encourage your child at home by helping to make sure they have
completed their homework and are reading for at least 20 minutes
each night. It is important we both do our part to ensure academic
success for your child.
Finally, we will be going over our classroom rules the first day of
school. I will send home information that may help answer some of
your questions about my rules, consequences, and rewards. Please go
over the discipline plan with your child. I know with your help we will
have a great year!
