Welcome to Glen Oaks School! My name is Ms. Dirschl and I will be one of your child’s teachers for second grade. This will be my 12th year teaching at Glen Oaks Elementary and I am looking forward to the upcoming school year with your child. We will be studying many exciting things through eight ELA (English Language Arts) units which you can learn more about here: 2nd Grade ELA Curriculum Map. I have a love of reading, writing, and learning new things and hope to instill that in your child this year.I feel that parents are a vital component of our classroom community. I value a strong home-school connection, and actively seek to establish that. Be sure to add the Remind App to your phone to stay updated on important school information and received text updates from me. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me! My direct school phone number is (708) 233-5879. I am looking forward to working with you to create a positive school experience for your second grader.
