I am looking forward to meeting you all on Monday, August 6th at our Meet the Teacher event. Please be sure to schedule a time! In the meantime, feel free to click on "About Me" to learn a little about who I am and my background as a teacher.
Just as I am sure you are curious about me, I am curious about your child! I would love a chance to learn a little about your first grader before the school year starts. As such, I am asking you to please email me a short letter to tell me a little bit about your child. This letter could include interests (both in and out of school), strengths, needs, learning style, motivators and anything else you think could help me get to know and best support your child. I would also love if you could include a picture to help me put a face with the name! Please send these to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1st if possible! THANK YOU!!
