Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Candace Gilbert-Decker

I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher! This is my 3rd year at Thayer and I am so excited to start the year!

Your 2nd grader will learn through many different learning experiences.  Students will learn through guided reading and balanced literacy stations in Reading.  We use a hands-on approach to writing through Step Up to Writing and Zaner Bloser components.  Students will develop a strong number sense with our innovative math program, Math Expressions. Technology is an integral tool in all subject areas. 

All students can learn and will develop confidence in themselves.  You will always be your child's first teacher, and now I have the pleasure of assisting you.
