Mrs. Chmielewski


Dear Parents,

I’d like to welcome you and your child to second grade!  My name is Jane Chmielewski.  I have been teaching second grade at Tibbott since 1999 and believe second grade is the best! 

I chose to adopt UCLA  to help inspire my students as they take some early steps towards becoming college and career ready!  A little history on UCLA and why it plays an important role in our class:

  • UCLA is the most applied-to university in the nation!  Only 18% of applicants are accepted.  This tradition of excellence is one I strive to create within our classroom!
  • UCLA holds 113 NCAA Championships, again the most in the nation!
  • Bruins have earned over 261 Olympic medals, with more than half of them being gold!
  • More than 140 companies have been created based upon technology developed at UCLA.

These are just a few highlights, taken from UCLA’s website.  The underlying message I like to convey to my students is that UCLA has a strong tradition of working hard and being the best.  In our classroom, it’s referred to as a “Bru-WIN” attitude.  I expect the best from all of my students and in return will do my best to support and guide them through second grade.  Please encourage your child to put forth his/her best effort on a daily basis! 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns throughout the year, please don’t hesitate to contact me!  We are a stronger team together!

Student + Parent + Teacher = SUCCESS!
