Welcome to Mrs. Huish's 2nd Grade Class!
Classroom Phone: 480-472-7715
Welcome families and students to the 2017-2018 school year! I am so excited to meet all my new second grade Dragons soon! This will be my 14th year of teaching. I have taught 1st grade for 7 years and 3rd grade for 4 years. This will be my third year at Ishikawa teaching second grade. My husband and I live here in Mesa and have two boys. Hunter is 9 and Greyson is 4; and they keep me busy when I am not at school!
I have spent most of my life in Arizona. I grew up in Fountain Hills, attended Northern Arizona University where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and attended University of Phoenix where I received my Master's Degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction. I was born in Wisconsin, lived in Minnesota, moved to AZ when I was 2 and have resided in Fountain Hills, Flagstaff, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Chandler, and finally Mesa. I have always wanted to teach, so everywhere I have been centered around being in schools and teaching children; preschool - jr. high!
My second graders have taught me that this grade is the most fun! In my classroom, you students are active members of a community and part of a family. We will learn and grow together. You are dreamers, thinkers, artists, readers, scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and what ever else you put your mind to. You will never know what you are capable of if you never try. I am privileged to guide you through the journey this year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
