I am so excited to begin a new school year with you and your family this year! I am your new
first grade teacher. I also teach third grade English. I am so excited to meet you all during our student
orientation. We will be learning many new things this year. I am hoping to meet all of you and learn all
about you and your family.
My family and I live in Beloit, Ohio. It is about fifty minutes from Faith Islamic Academy. I have
four children that are all grown up. I also have four grandchildren. I love spending time in the summer
with my family in our backyard having picnics. I also have a dog named Brodee. The first week of school
we will be getting to know each other so I will ask you to share things about yourself.
We will be making our community rules the first week we are in school. These rules will help us
stay safe and healthy while we are here attending school. I will share these rules with your parents. We
will also talk about what is appropriate at school. I am looking forward to hearing all your opinions and
We will be using Class Dojo for our rewards/behavior system. You will like it because you earn
points in class for good behavior and when you read and record it in your reading log. Every twenty
points you earn a reward out of my treasure box. There are all kinds of candy and food that you can
choose from my treasure box.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you. Please take care and stay well. If you have any
questions or would like to relay special information about your son or daughter, please don’t hesitate to
send a message or email.
