Hello! My name is Kathy Putkey and I am thrilled to be back teaching second grade. This will be my 22nd year in teaching and I feel passionate about providing students with experiences that meet their learning styles in an environment where they feel secure and supported in the process of achieving their personal best.

 

I am a graduate of San Jose State University where I received my Bachelors of Arts in Child Development and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with a CLAD emphasis. Recently, I received a credential in Administration from National University and I am continuing to pursue my Masters in Educational Leadership.

 

My husband and I live in Roseville, and we are the proud parents to two beautiful daughters. When I am not at work, I enjoy all things related in the kitchen whether it be trying a new recipe or watching a cooking show about new techniques or recipes.  You can also find me at the gym working off all my experiences in the kitchen.

Tomorrow is our field trip to B Street Theater. Please talk with your child about theater and audience behavior. While watching a live theater performance, it is important to sit quietly and listen. It does not mean that you need to be silent. Be sure to laugh at the funny parts (or cry at the sad parts), and certainly applaud at the end! Actors love it when an audience is involved with the show by actively watching and listening. I will also be sharing these expectations with students on Monday. Students are invited/encouraged to wear “fancy” clothes. It is fun to dress up.

We are celebrating our students and the growth they make! This week is Growth Mindset Week. Having a Growth Mindset is to key success. Yes, hard work, effort, and persistence are all important, but not as important as having the underlying belief that you're in control of your own destiny. 
Please join us in dressing up for the rest of the week.
Tomorrow: Kick the Fixed Mindset and say YES to Growth Mindset (Wear Western Wear!)
Thursday: Be a Superhero that grows in their strength (Dress like a Superhero)
