Mrs. Deldreqka Scott
Welcome to Second Grade at Cartersville Primary School! Your child has been assigned to grow as a reader, writer, and mathematician in Mrs. Scott’s Class this year! I am excited about spending the year with you and your child. I will work hard in continuing your child’s positive educational journey. I would like to take this opportunity to give you some understanding and background about myself!
My name is Deldreqka Scott, and I am in my 19th year of teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade for all but one year. During that year, I was responsible for K-5 Instructional Support. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood at the State University of West Georgia. I completed my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Classroom Leadership at Kennesaw State University in 2005. I completed my Specialists Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through Piedmont College in June 2018. My husband and I have 5 children, all girls, whose ages are 25, 22, 21, 11, and 9. I will work hard in order to provide your child with wonderful learning experiences. I take my career in education very seriously and choose to spend many hours outside the classroom preparing instructional materials and activities. I have a strong personal philosophy of education, part of which I will share below.
I believe that it is important to help develop each child into a strong lifelong learner. In order to accomplish this goal, children need to be guided in these areas:
- Ownership: To motivate children to feel that they are in control of their learning, not just trying to please others.
- Risk taking: All people have different levels of risk-taking willingness. I will work hard to help my students allow their natural curiosity and academic risk-taking to bloom so that they grow as self-starters in the learning process.
- Flexibility: All children are not alike. I have a class of individual learners. It is important that I am always flexible with their emotional and intellectual growth.
I am excited to get to know you all better!
