Mrs. Alchin's Second Grade

Mrs. Alchin 

Welcome to Second Grade! I graduated from Towson University in 1991 with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, and from Loyola University with a Master's degree in Special Education.  This will be my 29th year teaching, 13 of which have been here at Edgemere. I have taught IGE-3, Pre-K, 1st grade, 2nd grade and Inclusion.  I am very excited to be moving up to second grade this year.

When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family.  I live in Edgemere with my husband, daughter and son. I enjoy traveling, watching sports, reading and of course teaching.  My favorite author as a child was Judy Blume. 

Please continue to check back for upcoming news and information and, as always, please feel free to call the school or email with questions or concerns!  Thanks in advance for all of your support in making second grade successful and fun for your learners!  Please read the information below to find out what we'll be doing throughout the year.
