The Dynamic Duo!
Hello Families! We are so excited to be your teachers this year! You are probably curious to know a little more about each of us. Ms. Marshall has been teaching at Wildwood for 25 years. She has experience in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and multi age classrooms. She has been in second grade for the last 15 years. When she isn't at school, you will find Ms. Marshall gardening, spending time at the lake with friends, keeping her two cats out of trouble, or reading. Ms. Marshall loves to read. If you need a book suggestion, check with her!
Mrs. Showers just celebrated her 19th wedding anniversary. She is married to Patrick Showers and they have 4 children: Jesiah - 10th grade, Addie - 8th grade, Eliah - 6th grade, and Malachi - 2nd grade. All of her children attend Mahtomedi Schools. When she isn't at school, you may find Mrs. Showers running, riding her new road bike, spending time with her family, reading, or driving her kids to various activities/sports. She spends lots of time in the car and has discovered this a great place to have some wonderful conversations with her kids.
We are both excited to work with your child. We will be in close contact with each other daily. Mrs. Showers will be starting the day and will be working from 8:15 to 12:15. Ms. Marshall will come in at 12:15 to 4:15 and will be there for the afternoon. Mrs. Showers will be teaching all the literacy including guided reading, phonics, spelling, and Daily 5 stations. Ms. Marshall will be teaching math, writing, science, and social studies. Please don't hesitate to contact one or both of us if you have any questions or concerns.
We will be continuing to update our website with lots of great resources and links. Please also take advantage of the other second grade teachers' websites for some great links! We are a part of a fantastic team with lots of great experience and resources.
