Just for Parents
As an eighth grade teacher, one of my goals is to prepare your child for high school, college, and the working world. In addition to covering curriculum mandated by the New Jersey Department of Education, the class will also have an emphasis on current events. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of students' knowledge of current events in the news. In order to help them develop into informed citizens, students will be required to complete current event reports for discussion and exploration in class.
As with any relationship, communication is key to your student's success. My first line of communication is always directly with the students, to encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning. Should you have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone, as I will not hesitate to contact you. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, (856) 795-2025 ext. 5265. It is important that we work together to help your student achieve maximum potential.
