The difference between a good school year and an outstanding school year is YOU! We know when parents are involved, students do better. YOU are the biggest influence in your child’s life. The value you place on education has a significant impact on how your child will progress through their years as a student. Spending quality time each day assisting them with homework and reading with them will develop a love of learning.
I am delighted that your child is in my class this year. This is my 13th year teaching at the Whiting Elementary School. I want your child to enjoy coming to school every day, I will be working hard to make your child’s classroom environment one that will be filled with many positive and enriching experiences. In order to accomplish this task, it is important to develop and maintain strong parent-teacher communication. Together, we will be more likely to motivate your child, increase your child’s self-esteem, nurture and support your child, and reach common goals. My commitment to you and your child is genuine and our interaction is essential to your child’s education, both academically and behaviorally.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached from 8:30am to 4:00pm at Whiting Elementary School (732) 350-4994. If that time doesn’t work, please call or text me on my cell at (732) 691-5063. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
Children love seeing their families in their classroom. Let me know if you’d like to help run work stations, plan and follow through a craft, and/or anything educational. I have been busy this summer attending workshops and planning many fun-filled learning activities and cannot wait to get started!
