Welcome to Second Grade

Mrs. Roughgarden



My hope as a teacher is to provide my students with every opportunity to learn, ask questions, and share their experiences with each other through guided instruction. We can accomplish this by supporting each other and by following Jesus' way in our Catholic school environment. I enjoy being a Second grade Catholic School teacher because I have the privilege to be a part of a very important time in their lives, helping them prepare for First Penance and First Holy Communion.  Being able to share these experiences with the students is so special to me.
