Welcome to the second grade! My name is Brad O’Connell and I will be your child’s second grade teacher. This will be my sixth year teaching at Chahta-Ima Elementary. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University, and hold a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I promise to do whatever I can to help your child reach their maximum potential. I am extremely happy to have your child in my class this year, and look forward to sharing the responsibility of your child’s education with you. This year you will receive a weekly newsletter on Mondays to keep you informed of curriculum, class events, and important dates. Feel free to contact me anytime throughout the year with and questions or concerns; my email is brad.o’firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to this new school year.
