Welcome to 8th grade! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child and working together to help your child succeed! As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life and it is with that understanding that I appreciate the role that you and I each play in the partnership to your child achieving the goals set forth for him or her. I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of myself. I earned my BS in Childhood Education from Suny College of Old Westbury and I am pursuing my Masters in Special Education from Molloy College. I have been teaching for over 10 years. I am also an ABA therapist working with children with autism and other disability.
I will be teaching your child English, religion, and social studies. I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well of for my students. I have always found that to be a formula for success! I want this to be an enjoyable, challenging, productive, and encouraging year for all of my students.
My main objective in writing this letter is to get to know my students. If you could please take a moment and write me a letter about your child that would be immensely helpful since making your child feel comfortable in our classroom is a major part of his or her success as a student, as well as mine as a teacher. I thank you in advance for taking the time to write to me. In addition, if you have any other concerns, please feel free to contact me. Communication is a huge part of your child’s success. If you have any questions/concerns, would like to schedule a conference or volunteer to help out, you can contact me at the school (718) 439-8067 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
