|Second Grade –
Michelle Signa graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education from Fontbonne College in St. Louis, Missouri. Teaching opportunities took her to Omaha, Nebraska and Houston, Texas prior to joining St. Margaret Mary School. Teaching at the early elementary level is her passion.
“Primary grades form the groundwork for learning which carries all through a child’s education. Second grade, which I teach, builds on the fundamentals introduced in kindergarten and first grade. Children this age are engaged, enthusiastic, and eager to learn. Their creativity, spontaneity, and individuality, in conjunction with her enthusiasm and experience, make for a classroom environment that fosters learning, and encourages independence.
As an educator of second graders, my enjoyment comes from watching them mature educationally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. That I am a cornerstone in a child’s educational life brings great personal satisfaction.”
Why I Teach at St. Margaret Mary School
“St. Margaret Mary School values its children, families, teachers, and community. It fosters an environment of compassion and understanding that extends beyond the walls of the school and into our neighborhood. As a teacher, interacting with children who are eager to learn, exchanging ideas and communicating with parents/guardians and peers, being a part of an institution that promotes community service, and engaging in the faith of our church, are compelling and compassionate reasons that I enjoy being part of St. Margaret Mary School.”
My Interests Outside of the Classroom
“Simply put, the most important thing to me is my family. Spending time sharing a meal, enjoying an outing, taking vacations — these are the things that keep me busy outside the classroom.”
