Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!!
On behalf of my school team, we hope this Back to School letter finds you enjoying the leisure and laughter a fun summer can offer. We at Almadinah are busily preparing the building for the students and the teachers, who will be back very soon. I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2018-2019 School Year! For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place. Our teachers and staff are passionate, caring, hardworking, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of people who take learning seriously while also making personal connections that help kids succeed.
For the past five years I have been a math and science teacher at Almadinah and am now honored to take on the role of reteaching the 5th grade mathematics this year. This school is where success lies, and I consider it the perfect opportunity and place to do the most important work in the world. There is no other place to be!
I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know all of you this year and engage in the educational process together. I am a big believer in communication and honesty. If we are honest with each other and communicate with each other then we will be successful. I also believe that building strong relationships between home and school is a key factor in increasing student achievement. As a teacher, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component to student success, as research continues to show strong correlation between increased involvement and high student success.
