My name is Eileen Dellwo and I am a second grade teacher at MES. I have been at MES nine years. I graduated from New Mexico State University with my Bachelor's in Education. I have been married for 21 years and I have a eleven year old son named Will.

I will be teaching English/Language Arts to your child this year. My partner teacher, Kayla Simons will be teaching Math, Social Studies and Science.

I am so excited to have your child in my class this year.

If you would like to schedule a conference, my conference time is 12:05-1:00.

We are spending a great deal of time working on establishing routines and procedures at the beginning of the year.  We have to spend the time teaching our students our expectation so I can ensure we are successful for the rest of the year.  We are emphasizing hard work and trying our best in all we do.  It takes time and patience, but we have made great strides since the beginning of the year.  Your kids are truly awesome.
We have been establishing our classroom family and working on the developing the workshop model.  I am developing relationships with each and everyone of your children.  Relationships are key to running a successful classroom.  Your children have to know me and trust me.  I've already bonded with them and look forward to getting to know them better.
You will be seeing "real letter grades" for the first time.  Progress reports go home on Tuesday.  Some grades are based on observation, so you won't necessarily see everything I grade.  Don't panic if you don't love what you see on your child's paper.  Some children have trouble adjusting to the rigor of second grade, some children are still in summer mode and quite honestly some children are just behind.  We are working hard at trying our best in everything we do in second grade.  Second grade is much rigorous than first grade and it can be adjustment for all students.
I am currently assessing student so I can form my reading groups.  Testing takes time, but I have made really great progress thus far and I will be finished before I know it. 
We are off to a wonderful start and I can't wait to get on with the rest of the year.  I feel very blessed to be your child's teacher.  They are incredible little people and I look forward to coming to work each and every day.

 I was so happy to get to see most of you at meet the teacher.  I know we haven't even officially started school and we don't know each other that well just yet.  I wanted to let you know that I was thinking and praying for all my new kids and old ones during the storm.  I was praying that everyone was safe and dry. 
My family and I were lucky and didn't sustain any damage to our home.  I know we were lucky, but many people were not as fortunate.  So if you need anything please let me know I will do my very best to help.  I also promise that if your life is in chaos right now and  you send your child to school we will take care of everything they need.  Mostly, I will love them and I promise to make school a safe and loving environment for them.  I do that always, but right now it seems even more important.  We will get through this difficult time together I just wanted you all to know that I'm thinking of you right now and that I care.  I am so looking forward to seeing your children the first day of school.
Love, Mrs. Dellwo
