Welcome to Second Grade!
Hello, my name is Ana Sambrano and I have been teaching at Newman for 13 years. Previously, I had worked as a teacher's aide for 4 years in this same school. I have been with this district for a total of 17 years. I am a graduate of UTEP and a native of El Paso.
I had the pleasure of meeting several parents at the Open House we had
in September. By now many parents have realized that second grade is
not like it used to be. There is a lot that second grade students must
master before they move on to third grade. Two of the most important
subjects are reading and math. Please make sure your child reads every
night for at least 20 minutes. Second grade classes are scheduled to go
to the library every other week. Students are reminded that they can go
after school to return and check out more books. Also, please ensure
that your child is also practicing his/her math facts that are assigned
by Mrs. Wagner. Mrs. Wagner and myself are departmentalized this year.
This means that your child has two teachers; one for math and science
and one for reading/ language arts. Students have an assignment
notebook where they write their assignments on a daily basis. This is
also used as a communication tool between teachers and parents. Please
don't forget to check your child's homework and sign their assignment
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to make an appointment at 236-5825. Conference time: 9:55 -10:40
