Dear Parents, This week you and I become partners in one of the most important jobs we have, helping your child to become all he or she can be. Because you as parents are an essential part of our educational process, it will be important for us to maintain open communication. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office and leave a message. I will make every effort to get back in touch with you as quickly as possible. As your child’s second grade teacher, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Lynn Quackenbush. I was born and raised in Savannah, and I love our beautiful city. I have two grown daughters and my husband, Bob, has been in the insurance business, in Savannah, for over 35 years. I graduated from Lambuth College. Lambuth is a Methodist Christian College located in Jackson, Tennessee. I have a B.S. degree in elementary education. I am certified in grades Pre-K through 8th grade. I also have my Gifted Certification in elementary education. I have taught second grade for sixteen of the twenty-four years I have been teaching. I have taught in the public and private schools here in Savannah. This will be my eighth year at Savannah Christian.
My Philosophy of Education is as follows: -I believe that all children can learn. -I believe that all children deserve love and respect. -I believe it is my responsibility, as a teacher, to do everything in my power to help children succeed.
I am so pleased to have the opportunity to work with your child, and I am looking forward to an enjoyable and productive year.
