It is easy to keep in touch with my students using e-mail. I would very much
like to hear from each of you. This is always a fun way to start the school
For the first time, we are beginning the year with students having school district
email addresses. However, sometimes it may be useful for me to have your
personal email address as well, so I ask that you please use that for this
- Use your PERSONAL email address to send me an e-mail message: firstname.lastname@example.org
(If you don't have one or you really do not want to share it, using your
school email is acceptable.)
- In the subject line, type your first name, last name,
and your class period.
Like this: Susie Smith - Per. 2
- Please answer the following questions in complete sentences.
I look forward to getting to know you!
If you already prepared something similar for another class, feel free
to copy/paste what you wrote for that teacher. Several teachers are planning
to use a similar set of questions for this purpose.
- What is your full name and what name do you prefer to be called? What
grade are you in?
- What are two or three hobbies or activities that you like to do?
- Given that options this summer were quite limited, how did you
and/or your family use your time? Or what is one exciting or memorable
activity or project that you did?
- What are you looking forward to most for this upcoming school year?
- Please share anything else you would like to help me get to know
you as a person and as a student.
- (Optional) Please include a recent photograph of yourself. It could
be a simple selfie, a favorite photo, or a picture of you doing
something you enjoy.
- Below is a link to my own answers for these questions.
