Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I have taught in the Allendale School District for twenty-eight years. I began teaching in 1991 as the sixth grade language arts teacher. Ten years ago, I earned a Master of Education degree through Centenary College in Hackettstown, NJ. Working full-time and raising four children is quite a challenge, but I couldn’t imagine my life without teaching.
I am looking forward to an exciting and challenging year. My goal for this year is to help your child reach his/her potential– intellectually and academically, as well as socially and emotionally. I expect hard work, cooperation, and respect. I believe that every successful student has the support of not only their teachers but also their parents. We are a team; working together and supporting one another will help your child succeed.
I look forward to working with you to help make this a challenging but fun, exciting year for all of us. Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns. You can reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
