Hello,

My name is Haley Smart and this is my third year teaching second grade! I am very eager for a very fun year filled with learning! Please feel welcome to stop by my students' and I's classroom to take a glimpse at what we are learning. 

I was raised in Rawlins, Wyoming and graduated from Rawlins High School in 2012. After graduating, I proceeded to attend College at Laramie County Community College and graduated with an Associates Degree in Education. After receiving my Associates Degree, I attended the University of Wyoming where I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with an area of concentration in early childhood. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to be able to return to my hometown and teach alongside some of the teachers that helped me to grow a love for learning!

I am dedicated to making this a wonderful year for your student! Through the use of a well managed classroom and many engaging learning tools, I know your child will reach high expectations. I value each individual student in my classroom and it is important to me that I build positive relationships with all my students. I hope that your child finds my classroom to be a welcoming environment, where they will have great success! 

Contact:

Parents, I would like to have continuous contact with you throughout the school year. Please contact me through Class DoJo (sign up by downloading the app and creating an account), email, or phone. You can contact me by DOJO or email at anytime during the day and it is best if you call after 3:00p.m. You will also be able to read about the learning targets and activities that are being taught in our classroom through my weekly newsletter. Please always  feel welcome to contact me with any questions or concerns. I want to partner with you in order to best support your child! 

Thank you,

Miss Smart

Classroom Rules:

Your student will be able to track their behavior each day through our classroom behavior clip chart. The students will be rewarded each day with tokens based upon their positive behavior on the chart. Each Friday the students will be allowed to spend their tokens in our classroom store! As a class, the students are also motivated to show positive behavior as we play the "teacher vs student" game each day. The students receive a star for positive behavior and the teacher receives a star when the students are not following classroom procedures. At the end of the day if the students have the most stars, they receive a point. When the class receives 20 points, they earn a reward that is voted upon.
