• Welcome to Our 2nd Grade Class at Coolspring!
     
    We are looking forward to another fun and exciting new year of learning and settling into our 2nd grade routine.  We are practicing what it means to be a GREAT STUDENT LEARNER and how to always stay on POSITIVE behavior for: *Showing Good Character, *Being Responsible, **Listening Carefully to all adults and students when they are speaking, *Following Directions the First Time they are given, *Working Quietly at all times, and *Not Bullying Others/Showing Respect, and especially *Being Kind to Others!
     
    Our daily routine includes i-READY hands-on Math, English Language Arts, which includes handwriting, spelling, grammar, creative writing, guided reading lessons with rotating stations of phonics, decoding, word work, paired reading, writing, computers, and listening.  We also have fun and exciting interactive Science Kits including: the"Nature of Science"; " "Technology and Tools";  "Plants and Animals"; and "Growing and Changing".  Our Social Studies unit theme centers on "People and Places" and includes: "Geography, Citizenship, Economics, History, and Landmarks".  Each week our class will visit a different country and explore its culture.  
     
     
     
     
  • Meet the Teacher
     
    My name is Ms. Mazac.  I grew up in Michigan City, IN, graduated from Manchester College with a Bachelor's Degree in Education.  This is my 24th year of teaching.  I taught two years of junior high in South Bend, IN and 17 years in Michigan City at Notre Dame School. This included three years in first grade, ten years in second grade, three years in kindergarten, and a year in RtI and Health/Gym. This is my fifth year in 2nd grade at Coolspring School.  
     
    I am honored to be a part of Coolspring's academic team and am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach your children!                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    I have two grown children.  My son lives on the East coast and my daughter lives in the Midwest. I live with my sassy 5.8 pound Yorkie dog who thinks he is a German Shepherd and a sweet 4 year old Shitzu-Yorkie puppy.
