Mrs. Fraire's Second Grade Class!

Hello students and parents! My name is Joanna Fraire and I am the new 2nd grade teacher! I am beyond excited to be joining the wonderful staff here at Maxfield Elementary and can't wait to meet you all! 
A little info about me, I am a Gorman High School graduate (Class of '05!) Go Panthers! It is exciting and heartwarming to me to be coming back home and to have the opportunity to teach where it all started for me. Some of my favorite teachers that left an imprint in my life taught here in Gorman. 
After a long hiatus from college, I finally found my calling at the age of 32! It's never too late to go after your dreams and accomplish them! I graduated from Western Governors University with my Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies and taught at an elementary in Midland, Tx for the last 5 years. I subbed for one year, was a teacher assistant for 3 years, and then taught Kindergarten for my first official year. I am a firm believer that teaching is not just about academics, but the relationships and positive environment a teacher provides for the students. I look forward to meeting all my new second grade friends and having an amazing year together full of fun and learning!
