Dear Parent/ Guardian,
I am so pleased to be teaching your child mathematics this year! I have taken this opportunity to let you know a little about myself and to invite you to contact me if I may be of any assistance to you with regard to your child. Please feel free to contact me by phone at school. I will return your call at the earliest possible time. I teach from the prospective that all of us all creative beings, though not necessarily creating in the same way. I have high expectations for each student but I recognize that all of us learn, create, and express ideas in a different ways. How sad it would be to live in a world where it was all the same. I encourage students to seek their own unique creative mode and to interpret ideas in ways that most appeal to their own creative nature. Initially, we will focus on some basic skills.
I do not anticipate problems which cannot be worked out in a spirit of cooperation. I have been careful to explain my expectations to the whole class.
Your child is important to me, and I will do my best to make sure that they feel appreciated.
