I hope this finds you well. I am so excited to be joining the Potlatch community this school year! I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Idaho. I taught 5th grade for the last two years in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. Although this will be my third year as a full-time educator, I have had experiences teaching many different grade levels. My wife and I love to travel, hike, listen to music, and spend time with family and friends. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with each of you as we embark on this 6th grade journey together. Please note that we are having a "Back to School" night on the 11th of September from 5:30pm-6:30pm. This will be a chance for students and parents to bring any classroom supplies that they would like to drop off prior to the first day of school, to fill out or pick up school paperwork, and to get to know our classroom a bit.
Parents, I have always operated my classroom with an open-door policy. It is integral to your child's success that we maintain a healthy line of communication. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or other items of conversation to bring to my attention, please feel free to reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful day,
