Dear Parents,

I am honored to serve as your child's teacher for the next few 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.

  1. 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?

  2. Are there certain activities, sports, careers or causes that he or she is passionate about?

  3. 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)
