I accept teaching your child as a tremendous honor and responsibility. With that being said, I will make myself available whenever possible to address the needs of your child. I return parent phone calls within a 24-hour period and sooner when an immediate response is needed. Furthermore, I will be more than happy to schedule a face-to-face conference with you at a mutually agreeable time. I'm looking forward to meeting you and working together to make 5th grade a memorable and enriching year for your child.

FAMOUS QUOTES

Abigail Adams

"If we mean to have heroes, statesmen, and philosophers, we should have learned women."

"Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence."

"I've always felt that a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting points of view he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic."
