Dear Parent or Guardian,
I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this year. I love teaching 7th and 8th grade English because I care deeply about each of my students. I believe students can grow and develop by examining the issues we cover in class. This year, your students will read countless stories, articles, and plays. Additionally, they will write in a variety of styles such as poetry, essays, letters, and critiques.
If you ever have any comments, questions or concerns, I am available for phone calls and meetings (by appointment please) each day before and after school. To schedule a meeting, you may contact me via my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call me at 405-735-4640. The best times to reach me are from 7:30a.m. - 8:00a.m. before school; 1:50p.m. - 2:45p.m. during my planning hour; or when school is over for the day.
I am excited about working with your child. I welcome questions or comments, and am looking forward to a great year!
Miss Jessica Swagerty
