I am so excited to begin this second grade journey with "our child" and see how much they grow this year. I became a teacher because your child's life is worth my time. I have been teaching second grade for 28 years and LOVE it. I am married Jim Dykes and we have three children, Bailey, Brant and Blaire. Bailey is a speech pathologist working in Fort Worth. Brant is a mechanical engineering student at Lamar University and will graduate May 2020. Blaire is in graduate school at Lamar University earning her master's degree in speech language pathology and will graduate May 2021. We all came to Woodcrest together when they were in elementary school and have great memories of being together. My goal is to make great memories with this class of second graders too.
I already know this will be an Amazing Year!!
Welcome to Mrs. Dykes's second grade! We love learning and having fun!
Some helpful tips and reminders for a successful year are:
- be at school on time and prepared to begin the day with ALL materials
- tardy bell rings at 7:50!
- make sure a parent or guardian initials the STAR notebook EVERY day!
- completely finish all homework if assigned
- A parent or guardian MUST check and initial all homework
