Parents / Students / Friends:My name is Phyllis Schenck and I am extremely excited to be your student’s third grade teacher for this school year. I am married to Gregg and we have one son Matthew, along with a dog named Gracie. I understand the process of raising children; the joys and the challenges parents face especially in today’s society. This is why I am committed to building a strong working relationship with the Parent/Guardians of my students.
I believe the foundation of this relationship is continuous communication between both parties. In order to keep these lines of communication open, I plan to send notes home or call home in the afternoon to inform you of your student’s progress or any issues that might arise during the day. In the classroom I plan to create a community of learners that is unique to the individual’ students who are in the community. A positive attitude must be present to ensure students are engaged and constructing knowledge. Ultimately, I want to create a positive safe environment where your child feels loved and accepted while they build confidence in their abilities.
I believe that ELA and Math is the main focus areas for my students. Therefore, I will do any professional development growth in this area and make any necessary changes towards helping your child succeed in these areas. I include small group and individualized instruction daily to ensure success in these areas. I will use the Montessori materials within our community to provide a firm foundation in these important areas.
I support an open door policy, where you are welcome in our community at any time. Please remember the school policy of checking in with the front office to obtain a name tag when you visit. There will be times when our community needs volunteers and it is my hope that if you have any spare time you will join us. Please free feel to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or the school office at 985-345-6857 until 3:30. After 7:00 pm and before 9:30 pm I can be reached at 504-723-4697 via voice or text.
Again, I’m looking forward to getting to know you, your child, and your family. With your help and support, I know we will have a TERRIFIC year!!
Sincerely, Mrs. Phyllis Schenck
