Mrs. Martha Gunter
Second Grade - Welcome Letter
I want to welcome you and your child to Second Grade!
I’m very excited about the upcoming school year and working with your child to reach his/her full potential! We will be embarking on lots of new learning and fun activities. It will be a year filled with spiritual and academic growth.
I take pride in creating a fun and safe learning environment for all my students. We will be working together to achieve our goals as a class and a school family. As parents you are the primary teachers of your children and I value any input and assistance in ensuring the success of your child. Communication will be a key to element to our parent/teacher relationship.
This is my seventeenth year teaching at an elementary level and my fourth year teaching at St. John of God School. I have enjoyed being a part of this school’s community and its commitment to faith and education. As a member of this community I feel a strong commitment to ensuring that your child gets a solid educational foundation. I graduated from California State University with a Bachelor’s degree in English. I’m also a proud member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, which recognizes academic excellence. I’m currently enrolled in the Masters of Science degree in Education and Credential program at Mount St. Mary’s University, with certification in Inclusive and Responsive Teaching. I value education and can’t wait to pass on my passion for learning to my students.
