Welcome to Mrs. Zech's Classroom!
Calvert Elementary 402-274-4129 ext. 607
Takes a Hand, Opens a Mind, and Touches a Heart.
My name is Emily Zech. I was born and raised in Auburn and have been teaching for Auburn Public Schools for five years. I received my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Elementary Education and Master’s of Education in Curriculum Development from Peru State College. I became a teacher for the obvious yet standard reason- I want to make a difference in a child’s life. Teaching has always been my passion. I know in my heart that I have the love for helping children succeed.
My husband Brian and I live in Auburn. We are the typical “high school sweetheart” couple. Brian is the owner and operator of Zech Trenching & Excavating. We have one son, Berringer. He is an active, enthusiastic three-year old. As a family, we enjoy golfing, kayaking, and exploring the outdoors together.
What is happening in 2nd Grade?:
Reading/Spelling: Each week during reading we focus on the weekly spelling words, sight words and vocabulary words, fluency practice pages, comprehension stories, and grammar skills. There are weekly reading, grammar, and spelling test given every Friday.
Math: Here at Calvert we use EnVision math. This is a technology based, interactive program that engages students with videos, daily spiral reviews, quick checks, small group activities, and math manipulatives. Throughout the school year, we will learn addition and subtraction strategies, money, mental math, place value placement, multiplication, division, and MUCH more!
