Welcome to Mrs. O’Shea’s Second Grade Class!
Dear 2nd Grade Families,
Welcome to 2nd grade, the BEST grade! My name is MacKenzie O’Shea and I am so excited to be your child’s 2nd grade teacher. This is my fourth year of teaching and my second year at CBPA! I was born and raised in the great state of Iowa. I moved to Minnesota to play soccer for the Gopher Women’s soccer team and attend college. Go GOPHERS! RAH! I graduated in 2014 with my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and then completed my Masters of Education in Spring of 2015. In the summer of 2015 my now-husband, Kyle, and I were married. We have the cutest, most adorable, snuggable, lovable, puppy. Her name is Willow and the students will hear about her a lot over the course of the year. We love to visit state parks, eat ice cream, and hangout on the deck.
I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her fullest potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.
I believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can send me a note, email me at Mackenzie.Oshea@ahschools.us or call me at (763-506-6085). Email is the easiest and quickest way to get ahold of me. I will also do my part by keeping email updates as well as a sheet that comes home each night titled, “How was my day?”. Please be sure to talk with your child about his or her behaviors in school each night and sign off on the sheet. Please feel free to leave a note on that sheet as well.
Also, feel free to participate in your child’s 2nd grade year as much as you are able! Helping hands are always needed. We have many special opportunities at this school to go on field trips and have parties. Please be sure to sign up and help. I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
