Personal Info:

My name is Stephanie Marroquin. I am very excited to be teaching second grade. Christian education, and especially Chapel Hill, has been an influential part of my life for many years. I attended Chapel Hill for PK-6th grades. I continued my Christian education at Heritage Christian for 7th-12th grades. I then pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

Upon graduation, God placed a desire for Christian education on my heart and lead me back to Chapel Hill as a teacher. After 8 years of teaching, God blessed my husband and I with a family and I took time off to be at home with my three boys. They are now attending Chapel Hill as well, and I am thankful that God has given me the chance to be teaching once again in a place that feels life home.

What’s Special about 2nd Grade:

Second grade is an exciting year with a lot of growth. Second grade is a year dedicated to strengthening reading skills and diving into more complex and exciting literature. Second graders also learn to respond to text through writing and by developing stronger paragraphs. In math, second graders build upon addition and subtraction foundations by introducing carrying and re-grouping. Excitement is always at its peak when second graders are introduced to the concepts of multiplication and division!!! Second grade is a year dedicated to fun, hands-on learning.

Major Events and Special Projects of this Year:

Second grade is full of fun projects to help us learn. Making edible landforms, animal habitats, and building our own communities, are just a few of the projects second graders complete to help discover the world God created. Second graders celebrate things like International Children’s day, Hibernation Day, 100s Day, Invention Day, and Mother’s Day. Second graders take field trips to the chocolate factory, the theatre, and a local camp to help us enhance the things we are learning in the classroom.
