ABOUT MRS. GAW

Dear Families,

Hello and welcome to second grade!  This is my 15th year teaching and my third year at Maplewood Heights Elementary.  In addition to teaching 2nd grade last year, I’ve also taught 3rd, 2nd, and 1st grades for the Clark County School District in Las Vegas.  Prior to that, I lived in Spokane and graduated from Eastern Washington University in 2003 with a Master in Elementary Education.  I am very excited to start my third year here with the Maplewood community!

Our classroom behavior is based on 3 simple B’s – 

BE KIND!

BE FAIR!

BE POSITIVE!  

My first step is to praise positive behavior. Students will also earn classroom dollars for great behavior and if needed, may have dollars taken away.  Students earn a classroom dollar every day they come to school and can save up their money to spend on Otter Pops or other classroom rewards.

Feel free to send a morning snack with your child.  We do have allergies in our classroom, so students are NOT allowed to share. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding snacks.
