Dear Parents and Students,
I am excited to be your child's English teacher for the 2016-2017 school year! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I may be of assistance regarding any concerns you have.
Welcome to WHS and the beginning of the last three years of high school. Your enrollment in this class is very important! English is your ability to read, write, and most importantly to think. It is not just a required course in high school - it is life. My goal this year is to help make the class of 2017 a class that learns what to question and how to question the world around us.
In English 1 and 4, as in any other rigorous high school course, students sometimes have questions or need assistance with an assignment outside of the school day. I am available for tutorials on Tuesdays during the block lunch for Eng 4 and after school for Eng 1. In addition, I use the REMIND mass texting tool for clarifying instruction and reminding students of assignments outside of the traditional school day. This texting tool is for educational purposes, and students cannot communicate with me by replying, nor can students see one other’s phone numbers. This is purely a notification system only.
Thank you for allowing me the privilege of working with your student this year. I am looking forward to an engaging and intellectually promising year!
