Welcome to our classroom website! 


            Welcome to Room 2, a place where a positive learning environment enables children to grow socially, emotionally, and academically. In an effort to develop a positive learning environment, communication between parents, students, and the teacher is essential.  This website is one of our communication tools.  Please visit this site often to stay informed. 


           I am so excited to have you return to or join The Room 2 Crew!  My name is Jo Ann Kiessling and I will be your child's or children's Second Grade teacher.  My family and I reside in West Deptford and both of my children have graduated from West Deptford High School.  Tommy is at Temple University and Jason is at West Virginia University.  My husband, Tom and I are "empty nesters" again this year.  The other joys of our lives are our 2 dogs, Daisy and Cosmo. 





            This is my 7th year of teaching 1st/2nd grade at Oakview. Previously I taught Kindergarten at Redbank. Teaching is my passion! I love my job and cannot wait to meet the new students of The Room 2 Crew and be back together with those from last year! Mr. Patrick will be joining our class this year.  He will be in our room during Reading, Writing and Math.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will see you soon!
