My name is Kadeeja Mohamed and I will be your child’s Kindergarten teacher this year. First and foremost, I would like to welcome you and your child to our class. I am so excited to meet you and your child!
Let me begin by telling you a little about myself. I graduated from Wayne State University with a Masters in Bilingual-Bicultural Education with a Specialization in English as a Second Language in 2015. I also have a Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2009 with an Early Childhood Endorsement from Wayne State University as well. This is my 11th year teaching kindergarten.
Next, let me give you a brief summary of how your child will spend his or her day in the classroom. I have worked very hard to create a classroom that is very organized and structured. Your child’s daily routine will be filled with hands-on activities, small group work, whole class work and discussion, one-on-one instruction, and subject concentrated centers. Through these aspects, your child will learn through discovery and exploration, but most of all they will learn by having FUN. It is also my plan to teach your child to grow into a well-rounded individual that loves to learn. I whole heartily believe my patience, kindness, and love for learning will aide greatly in developing your child’s love for learning.
As all of you know, your child is still growing mentally and physically. To aide in this growth, your child will have one snack time. I will be providing snack for the first week, but please donate a healthy snack for the class. Snacks preferred would be cheese crackers, animal crackers, gold fish etc. You could pick up a box from your next trip to the grocery store or Sams club.
I will be here every day for your child, which means I will also be here for you as a parent. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, I will be here for you. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org The best form of communication is email, but I am also available by phone. I do ask, out of respect for your child’s education, that communication take place before or after school hours. Of course, if it is an emergency, you can contact the front office and they will connect you to the classroom.
The blog is used as a communication tool. So, please refer to this blog weekly. I will discuss content and expectations for each week on Monday or Tuesday. You may leave comments below. For more personal matters, please email me at email@example.com
Lastly, I want to thank you for allowing me to educate your child. Your child is in the best of hands throughout the day and you are welcome anytime!
