About Mrs. Malisia
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am beyond excited to be teaching 2nd grade and working with you and your student this year! This is my 11th year teaching at Oakland, and I absolutely love the students and staff here! I look forward to a fabulous school year! Thanks for sharing your student with me!
I graduated from Bradley University in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in both Special Education and Elementary Education. I also graduated from Illinois State University in 2014 with a Master's degree in Reading.
My husband, Joe, and I have two beautiful and precious daughters, Claire (5), and Kate (3), and we are expecting our 3rd child this year! We also have a fun, sweet black Lab/German Shepherd mix at home named Addy (9). We love to spend time with "our 3 girls", our families, and our friends as much as possible!
Mrs. Malisia met a teacher idol - Ron Clark!
Mrs. Malisia met more teacher idols - Hope and Wade King!
Our STAR binders stand for "Students Taking Action and Responsibility". Please review the contents of your child's binder each evening for daily behavior information, important notes, and weekly homework.
A green Friday Folder will be sent home each Friday containing your student's work from the week. Please review the contents with your student, sign off on it, and send it back to school empty every Monday.
Our newsletter is sent home every Friday. It contains our spelling words for the following week, academic information for each content area, and other important information.
Our spelling tests are routinely on Thursdays. We will take the spelling test for the week, as well as a pre-test for the follow week's words. Spelling TicTacToe activities are also due on Thursdays.
