Welcome to Mrs. Mitek's 2nd Grade!

Welcome to second grade with Mrs. Mitek! 
Welcome! My name is Alison Mitek and this is my third year at St. Thomas More.  As a military child and spouse, I have had the opportunity to live in quite a few places across our great country so transition is an old hat to me.  I moved to Virginia in 2007 and have been in Arlington for 12 years. I received my first bachelor degree in Communications, Advertising and Public Relations and my second in Sport and Fitness Management. In 2007 I received my Masters Degree in Sport Management.
After working for a number of years I decided to stay home with my daughter and focus on family. It was then I realized a love of working with children. I began subbing in the Arlington Public School System and teaching Catechism at Our Lady of Lourdes in Arlington. I was blessed to have the opportunity to work at St. Thomas More as a Kindergarten aide. As luck would have it I was able to step in as the full time substitute for our wonderful 5th grade teacher when she needed to take a leave of absence, and the rest is history!
I am thrilled to be staying in second grade this year and am looking forward to helping your children grow academically and spiritually. My goal is to make school an exciting and fulfilling adventure that your child looks forward to each and every day.
