About Ms. Lisa De Anda...
Position: 2nd Grade Teacher
Welcome to our 2nd Grade website! It is going to be an amazing year of learning in 2nd grade!
My Education and Professional Background
I obtained my bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Ottawa University. I also have a Masters Degree in Teacher Leadership from University of Phoenix. I have taught second grade for sixteen years.
My Educational Philosophy
I intend to create a learning environment where all students feel valued and comfortable in taking learning risks. Taking learning risks will challenge students to use critical thinking and problem solving skills that are needed in today's world. I believe in motivating students to be critical thinkers, to show their personal best, and strive to achieve their learning goals. A strong partnership between students, families, and colleagues is necessary to ensure learner growth. I will help students to feel motivated about learning, be proud of their achievements and understand positive choices that keep them on a path to a bright future.
