Dear Second Graders,
Hi! My name is Mrs. Yount and I am your second grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. I wanted to write and tell you a little about myself and hopefully make you excited about second grade.
This is my 16th year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, first, third, and second grade. This is my 12th year teaching at Valley Springs Elementary. I spent my first 9 years at Valley Springs teaching 3rd grade. I am excited to begin my third year of teaching second grade!
I grew up in Harrison and graduated from Harrison High School. I have a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education and a master’s degree in reading from the University of Central Arkansas.
I have been married to my husband Chris for 14 years. We have a nine year old son named Zayd and a 1 year old daughter named Elzie Quynn. Zayd will be a fourth grader at Valley this year. We also have a spoiled rotten nine year old miniature dachshund named Jett.
When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, shopping, playing softball and volleyball, swimming, and spending time with my family and friends.
I am excited to be your teacher! It’s going to be a great year!
These are a few of my favorite things:
Drink: Vanilla Coke and water
Food: Crawfish and any Seafood
Sports:: Volleyball and Softball
Book: The Lightning Thief
Colors: Mint, Coral, and Gold
Dessert: Strawberry Pie
Candy: Chocolate Covered Strawberries
