   A look at Second Grade

Greetings to all,

     My name is Mrs. Ellen Meehan.  I am a second grade teacher at Holy Cross School.  I have been teaching second grade at HCS for 5 1/2 years.   I began my teaching career in Catholic schools in New York City.  I also taught third, fourth, and fifth grade in the NYC public schools for several years before staying home to raise our three children.  I hold a BA in Communications from Fordham University. Shortly after graduation, I returned to school to study Education.  I also earned a Masters Degree as a licensed Reading Specialist.  I have training in both the Wilson Reading Program and Orton Gillingham approach to reading instruction and remediation.   I am passionate about teaching reading, directing my focus on remedial reading and building life-long readers.  

     Also, I am honored and humbled to be able to prepare our second grade students to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Penance and the Sacrament of First Holy Communion.  I look forward to working with your child this year.   I believe a strong home/school communication creates the foundation for a successful school year.  Please contact me at if you have any questions or concerns.
