Dear Families, Welcome to Second Grade and Room N211! My name is Ms. Sharon Youngblood and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This is my third year at Mokena Elementary School and my 19th year teaching second grade. Prior to working in District 159, I was a second grade teacher in Oak Forest. I graduated from Governors State University with a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration. I am very passionate about teaching and strive to instill a life-long love of learning in your children this year. In my personal life I enjoy being outdoors, love the season of Fall and anything pumpkin flavored (especially coffee!), and have a 165 pound Great Dane dog named Bob.
I am very excited to be a member of the District 159 family. I believe parents and teachers are partners in education and work together to provide your child with the best learning experiences possible. I encourage open communication and look forward to your input in your child’s learning. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone, note or email at email@example.com.
Thank you in advance for your support for this upcoming school year. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you, as well as continuing to learn with your children. Kind Regards, Ms. Youngblood
