    All children are special individuals who learn in many different ways.
    Every child can 
    succeed.

    Mrs. Melissa Symczak graduated from Glassboro State College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education. After college she taught first grade for seven years. She has been teaching second grade at Brookdale for twenty-two wonderful years. 

    Please continue to teach your child responsibility by discussing the contents of his/her homework folder together daily.
     
    Encourage your child to spend time reading every day. Reading to your child is also very beneficial to help your son or daughter develop and improve literacy skills. The quantity of reading increases stamina and the quality of reading increases  your child's ability to think deeply and connect to the text. Both will help to build vocabulary. Reading is the best gift you can give to your child!
