Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with your child. I have taught at New World Educational Center for 14 years.
I have my master’s degree in Special Education and have training and certification in English Language Development.
The purpose of this letter is to give you some general information to help your child have a successful school year. Enthusiasm for learning and maintaining a productive on-task environment is essential. I often talk to the students about how we can work together to make our classroom a fun and safe place to learn.
We will continue to discuss behaviors that enhance learning in the upcoming weeks.
I believe in focusing on the positive and recognizing individual children when I see behaviors and work habits conducive to learning. Suppose a child exhibits behaviors that get in the way of his/her education or the teaching of others. The student and I will work together to get him/her back on track.
This year I have provided the students with a binder from my classroom. Please keep this binder and use it to help the children with organizational skills, reading, and math support. The folder also includes the service provider list and contact information for this school year for your reference.
I feel that children learn best when teachers and parents work together. Please feel free to contact me at the school phone number or email me, and I will get back to you within 24 hours. Because I want the children to get the most out of the school day, I will be unable to use student servicing time to meet with parents. However, please see my availability schedule below.
Thanks again for your support this year, and I look forward to working with you and your child.
