Dear Future Students and Fabulous Families,

Welcome to Mountainside Elementary Schools’ 2nd Grade!  I can’t express to you how happy I am to help prepare you and your child to excel and be leaders in the 21st century. To achieve that goal, my teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that children learn most effectively when they feel confident and empowered by their learning. I strive to create a positive and safe classroom environment where, how, and what a student learns is equally important. I believe that a strong parent, teacher, and child partnership is needed in order develop the most successful student possible. Education doesn’t begin and end with school; I believe a significant piece occurs in the home as well.  Much of what we do in the classroom should carry over to the home.  Your encouragement and interest in their schoolwork does wonders for their minds. I look forward to creating a challenging and exciting school experience in all academic areas. Please feel free to email me at if you have questions.

2nd Grade Teacher,

Mrs. Kathy Paulson
