Meet the Teacher–August 22

August22

Tonight is Meet the Teacher at the WOMS!  I can’t wait to meet all of my incoming students and parents!  This is going to be a fantastic year for your child.  Parents, if you cannot make it tonight, please go ahead and do two things for me:

1.  Subscribe to my blog.  The section to do this is on the lower right-hand side of this page.  Just put in your email address and click ‘Create Subscription.’  This will keep you updated on the things we are doing in class and any other important information you may need.

2.  Under the ‘Friends and Links’ section (on the upper right-hand side of this page), click on ‘Student Information Form 2014-2015.’  This will take you to a Google Form where I can get some information from you, and you can give me any information that is pertinent to your student.  Once you have finished, click on ‘Submit,’ and you are finished.

Thank you for taking the time to do this.  Being a parent myself, I know how much information we are asked for at the beginning of school, but it helps me to better meet your child’s needs.

I appreciate your time, and I am looking forward to a great year!
