Greetings Second Grade Families,

Hotep, my name is Mama Angie and I will be your child’s second grade facilitator.  I have been an early childhood educator for 21 years, yes, 21 years!  I was an assistant director and preschool teacher for five years.  I taught an inclusive headstart class for three years.  I have taught kindergarten for six years, as well as teaching second grade for five years, and fourth grade for two years.  This is my third year at Sankofa and I am excited to be back in the second grade world.  I earned my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Holy Family University and my Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Capella University.  I am married with three children and a house full of animals.  Two of my children currently attend Sankofa.

This year the children will be reviewing skills from last year and be challenged to progress even further.   Throughout the year you will hear a lot about SBA to HEKA, which is a community based learning experience each grade participates in.  There will be some projects that the children will be required to complete at home.  I make every attempt to have the projects be a fun learning experience, as well as having plenty of time to complete them.  ALL PROJECTS COUNT AS A MAJOR GRADE.  There will also be homework every Monday – Friday.  ALL HOMEWORK SHOULD BE CHECKED BY AN ADULT AND SIGNED NIGHTLY.  HOMEWORK ALSO COUNTS AS A MAJOR GRADE.  The scholars will have Music on Mondays, Physical Education on Tuesdays and Fridays and Art on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

I look forward to working with you and your scholars.
