Mrs. Tucker

The second grade students have been learning about place value.  Last week they dressed up as pirates, and went on a treasure hunt.  They had to find the number in the correct place value to lead them to the treasure.

Vacation: Disneyland is as far as I have ever been—I hope to go to Nashville to visit the Grand Ole Opry someday, and would love to go to Europe and Costa Rica at least once in my lifetime, but it will probably never happen.

Time of Year: Summer

TEACHING EXPERIENCE  One year in third grade and then I did my student teaching in second and sixth grade. 

HOBBIES/INTERESTS  I follow my children around to support their hobbies and interests. They include a mixture of music and sports. I don’t have much time for my own hobbies and interests outside of teaching, studying, and taking professional development classes. I devote a lot of my time to church service as well. I used to enjoy quilting and crocheting baby blankets, but I think I have forgotten how. I enjoy attending concerts, movies, and plays occasionally.

Hobbies/Interests  I love spending time with my family!  We enjoy playing games, laughing, and watching movies and sports.  I enjoy waterskiing, wakeboarding, sandboarding, and longboarding.  Taking my dog Bear for walks or teaching him new tricks is always very entertaining!  You can often find me in the kitchen trying out new recipes.  I find cooking and painting to be relaxing.

Each month Mrs. Lyons teaches the students about a character value. During the beginning of September, she taught about the importance of respect.  Each teacher then chooses two students from their class who they feel are being examples of the value.

Some of the students who were chosen for the Character Education Monthly Award said this about respect.

"I think my techer chose me because I help pepole and loke (look) out for others."

"Respect is being nice to my friends."

"I can show respect by following directshons the first time given."

"I think it means beingkind to others and even if you don't want to do it your just do it to be kind.  And be kind."

"I think respect is not talking when other people are and being kind and listening to directions.

"Respect means to me to be a good exaple to others and myself."
