Dear Mr. Hames,
Include in your letter to me the following (must write in complete sentences and don't just make a list.):
Tell me your name.
What is one word (noun, verb, or adjective) that begins with the first letter of your name that describes you in some way?
Explain why you selected that word?
What is one thing I might want to know about you?
What is one or two things you want to learn in my class this semester?
What are you hobbies or interests outside of school?
What are your short-term ( in the next few weeks) and long-term (much later in life) goals?
What is your WoW Factor (the one thing that might amaze me about you)?
What are you looking forward to in life or tell me about your dream career?
Finally, What is LEADERSHIP?
Leave about an inch space (hit Enter 4 times) for your signed signature
Type Your First and Last Name Here
7a-06 (Type YOUR Connection# under your name)
NOTE: If you finish early, I will explain how to add a "text wrap" graphic and also ask you to bold and underline the key words and phrases in your paragraph you wrote. DO NOT underline and bold an entire sentence please.
I am honored to serve as your child's teacher for the next 5 months and I am looking for ways to connect with them. For this reason, I am asking your child to give me a written profile of him/herself, and I’d like to invite you to participate if you would like by writing me a short paragraph about your child. Knowing how each student sees him/herself helps me to better serve his/her needs, and additional insights from you will help me understand more about your child so I can serve them better.
How would you describe your son or daughter as a person? As a thinker or learner? As a student? As a reader and a writer?
Are there certain activities, sports, careers or causes that he or she is passionate about?
Finally, what are their biggest fears and challenges right now? What big events are coming up in the next six months for them?
Thank you so much for taking the time to share this information and I will closely guard what is written. On the same note, please do not share information that is too personal that you would not like me to know. (* I tell this to the students as well)
