Greetings Razorbacks Family!!!
Welcome to 6th grade! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child and working together to help your child reach his or her highest potential! As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life and it is with that understanding that I appreciate the role that you and I each play in the partnership to your child achieving the goals set forth for him or her. I have personally introduced myself to my students, but I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief overview as well. I am firm, fair, and fun. I earned my BA in English from Wiley College (1997), my Masters in Education from Oklahoma City University (1999), and my Doctorates in Education from Texas Southern University (2007). I have over 15 years of teaching experience (public school and college), and I am certified in ESL as well. Throughout my educational career, I have received several awards including Teacher of the Year. I love all subjects, but my passion is teaching English, reading, and writing. My goal is to instill a lifelong passion of reading and writing in all of my students. I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well as of my students and I have always found that to be a formula for success! I want this to be an enjoyable year for all of my students but also a productive, challenging, and encouraging year. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to work with your child as well as to work with the best of the best at RPJH! Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever have any questions and/or concerns. I welcome your support because it takes a village to teach a child. Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!
