2nd Grade - Miss Kelly Dickinson
Welcome to Room 9!
All About Miss Dickinson:
I am overjoyed to be teaching your students this year. One of my favorite parts about teaching 2nd grade is the children's enthusiasm for learning.
I am a San Mateo native. I attended school at Sunnybrae, Borel, and Aragon High School. I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal and Civic Studies, a minor in performing arts with an emphasis in dance, and a California Teaching Credential in 2013.
This is my sixth year of teaching! I am so lucky to be at Beresford. I love the school community and cannot imagine working anywhere else.
Outside of school, I am either teaching dance classes, taking classes at the gym, or watching soccer games. I'm always spending time with my family and friends.
Room 9 Wish List
Thank you for bringing in school supplies at the beginning of the year!!!!
As the school year continues, there are things that we will need.
At the moment, room 9 needs:
- Black expo markers (standard size, not thin tip)
- Ticonderoga #2 pencils
- Yellow post-its (standard size)
